How’s it going in sixth grade?

March 31, 2020 | Elizabeth Rachuri

I don’t know about you, but at my house, things are going well when it’s sunny and not so well when it’s raining.  I’m learning a lot about keeping a toddler entertained when we’re stuck inside!

In our class, there is so much learning going on, too.

I learn new things every day and use that to make changes in my practice each week.  So do students.

Over the past few weeks, students have made me proud in so many ways.  Here are some examples:

  • They are working “side-by-side” on assignments through FaceTime.
  • They request video chats with me when they don’t understand something.
  • They are trying different organizational techniques to stay on top of their work.
  • Some of them are taking walks every day!
  • Last Friday, 100% of students submitted their math assignment on time.
  • Most students show up to their small group meetings on time.

I’m sure you are learning a lot, too.  Thank you, parents, for all your hard work, flexibility, and support.

Thank you, students, for your hard work and attention to many details.

Let’s keep learning together 🙂

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!
