Instructional Coach

Rachael Alford


Hello! My name is Rachael Alford and I am so excited to be joining the Kendallvue Elementary family this year. I started my teaching career in the Green Mountain area, and for the past 5 years I've been teaching in the mountains. Although I love tshe Colorado mountains, I am eager to start a new journey down the hill, again. I have taught Kindergarten, 1st Grade, 4th Grade, and now 2nd and 3rd remote! Teaching is my passion and I absolutely love what I do each and every day. 

Along with loving to teach, I also have a love for the outdoors. I enjoy fishing, gardening, hiking, boating, snowboarding and traveling. My favorite place to be is in the middle of the ocean deep sea fishing, with my kids and husband. I have 2 kids, Troy who is 18 and Joyce who is almost 16. We have 3 dogs: Lucky, Duchess, and Belle, along with a leopard gecko named Joe.
 
I have always said that I teach like I parent. I have high expectations for my children and for my students. I believe that people learn best 2 ways: through hands on experiences and through making mistakes. When I teach, I get outside of the classroom as much as possible so the kids have the opportunity to do more 'out of the box' type of learning. 

I am excited to see what this school year brings, and am even more excited to watch your kids grow! Please feel free to reach out for any reason!
