What’s Your Story?

November 9, 2020 | Elizabeth Rachuri

In Language Arts, we’re doing a quick personal narrative study.  Students are reading memoirs and then writing about one of their own stories.

Along with reading and writing goals, we will be practicing time management with this assignment.

It’s only a two-week writing assignment, so it is vital that students stay on top of their work.  Students have many resources available to them on Google Classroom, and we have a calendar hanging in our room to help us stay on track.

Below, you can see photos of students brainstorming their story ideas.


Be sure to ask your child, “What’s your story?”

Elizabeth Rachuri

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!
