Happy Easter!

April 7, 2020 | Elizabeth Rachuri

Sixth graders have been hardworking and flexible during this transition to distance learning.  They continue to turn in their assignments, ask for help when they need it, and show up to video meetings.  I’m so proud of them!

They’ve been doing all this even while working on their memoir writing.  This week, students will complete their memoirs. They will be able to start spring break with a big exhale as they have turned in this important writing project.  

I have two plans for the memoir art project and presentation: one for distance learning and one for in-person learning.  I will present the appropriate plan when we return from break.

I’m also very thankful for you, parents.  I know you have many things to organize and juggle.  

Happy Easter!  I hope you all have a very happy, healthy, and relaxing break.  May you have screen-less days and lots of chocolate and jelly beans!

Teacher, Grade 5

Elizabeth Rachuri has always wanted to be a teacher. She began her career as a five-year-old girl creating and grading tests for her friends. She refined her skills in college as she studied, among other things, how to help struggling readers. Mrs. Rachuri spent a semester in Guanajuato, Mexico, studying Spanish and eating pan dulce. After college, she traveled to Puerto Rico to teach at the Christian School and Chapel for the Deaf. There, she learned American Sign Language and how to kill poisonous centipedes.

Finally, Mrs. Rachuri arrived at Mustard Seed School. Since that time, she has been teaching in the middle school. Her favorite part about teaching at Mustard Seed is leading worship. She loves to tell stories and get people to think deeply about God.

When she’s not teaching, traveling, or learning new languages, Mrs. Rachuri loves to draw portraits, sew, and (believe it or not) clean her house. But her new favorite pastime is singing and dancing with her daughter!
