Rachel Harley, The Problem Solver

Meet Rachel Harley, The Problem Solver at Liberty Collegiate Academy.

"I get up every day and come to work to fight for equality in education. I’m passionate about differentiating lessons in my classroom to meet all of my students’ learning needs. They deserve that. I have so many favorite moments as a teacher - but the one that comes to mind initially is about a student I taught last school year. He grew 4 grade levels in reading last year. This is an incredible amount of growth and it was encouraging to see him work so hard to get there. When my students think of me, I hope they remember that I was kind - and also held the bar high. It’s my desire that they also remember to keep trying, even when things are hard. I trust that this work ethic will stick with them - even when they’ve grown and left my classroom."
