Hello, my name is Rachel Adams and I am very eager to be teaching in Taiwan. I grew up in rural Wisconsin and graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a degree in Elementary Education and dual certification in English as a Second Language. After graduating from college, I taught fifth grade in an urban school. I am grateful to have teaching experiences from linguistically and culturally diverse schools and to have the opportunity to continue teaching and learning abroad.
I greatly enjoy learning about my students’ cultures, languages, and talents and positively incorporating them within our classroom. My ultimate goal as an educator is to provide a happy and healthy learning environment where my students can strengthen the skills needed to reach their fullest potentials. I am deeply motivated by my students’ future successes to provide them with the best education that I can offer. Having times of fun and rigor can be expected in our classroom!
Outside of teaching, I love spending time outdoors. Some of my hobbies include: biking, walking, kayaking, singing, and seeing live music. I am hopeful to gain more interests and hobbies while living in Taiwan.
