Mrs. Rachel Harms

Welcome to third grade!
I attended University of Iowa, Iowa City where I received my bachelor's degree in elementary education with a reading endorsement. I received my master's degree in curriculum and instruction from National Louis University. My first teaching experiences were in Batavia, Illinois where I taught first and second grades at JB Nelson Elementary. I also taught in multiple elementary schools in Batavia as a reading specialist and as a title one interventionist. After taking a break to raise my two children and a family move to Northern Ireland, I came back to Illinois and started my teaching experiences in SD 308 in 2017. I have taught as a reading interventionist, math interventionist, and as a kindergarten teacher. I am thrilled to be joining the third grade team!
