The teacher of the month for November is Rachelle Knudson. This is Knudson’s first year teaching at the high school.
Knudson was born on April 13, 1994. Her family consists of her mom, Carrie, her dad Bob, her two younger sisters, Jenna and Taylor, and her dog Coco. Her mom also teaches at the high school and both her sisters attend.
Knudson attended Regis University for three years, and played softball there all three.
Knudson teaches pre-calc, Algebra two, and Keytrain math. She loves teaching math because it is her favorite subject.
Knudson’s favorite hobby is coaching softball alongside her dad.
“I want to keep teaching and coaching and eventually have kids,” said Knudson.
In ten years she sees herself still teaching at the high school.
Although Knudson is a math teacher, her all-time favorite class she even took was education disparity and injustice in college. Her favorite movie is Baby Mama and her favorite book is If I Forget You Remember. One of her favorite memories is winning the RMAC Conference with her college softball team, and making it to regionals.
Knudson’s role model is her mother, Carrie.
“I really like having both my sisters at the school. It’s cool having my oldest sister teach my class. It’s also nice being able to all share cars when we need to because we’re all at the same place,” said Taylor, the youngest sister.
