Welcome incoming 4th graders! I am Miss. Rachael Wallace and I am one of Briar Glen's 4th grade teachers. In addition to being a classroom teacher, I will also be this year's 4th grade Social Studies teacher! I recently graduated from Elmhurst University with my bachelor’s degree in elementary education and an endorsement in teaching English-language learners. I grew up in Warrenville, IL and I now currently reside in Wheaton as of this summer! I am thrilled to be living in the community I will be working in. Before teaching, I was involved in my high school choir and I was a competitive gymnastics coach for four years in Batavia, IL during my college career. Outside of the classroom, I enjoy reading, being outside, learning new things and spending quality time with my family and friends. I am beyond THRILLED to be a part of District 89 and to be working in such a wonderful community. It's going to be a great year!
