Rachel James

Hello! My name is Rachel James and I am thrilled to be teaching Pre-K at Rose Union. This will be my fourth year teaching Pre-K! I was blessed to begin my teaching career at Grove Valley Elementary and loved moving over to Rose Union where I became part of the huge Pre-K team.  As a graduate of Deer Creek, I am excited to return to the district that provided me with an excellent education and I look forward to instilling a love of learning to my students.  I attended the University of Oklahoma where I received a degree in Early Childhood Education.  On the personal side, I stay busy with my family and two precious nieces (Makinlee & Zoey) who consume most of my spare time. 

Teaching is what I am passionate about and I am excited to have each and every students’ bright face in my class this school year. I believe it is important to instill a passion for life long learning into each child and so with that said we are going to have fun in Pre-K!
