Ms. Rachel Perez
My name is Rachel Perez, and this is my 3rd year as a gifted specialists at Haun Elementary!
After graduating from UT (hook 'em), I started my teaching career in 2008 as a 2nd grade teacher at Skaggs Elementary. I left as a Kindergarten teacher in 2013. Life took me to Brooklyn, NY where I taught Pre-K, 2nd and 4th grade for 6 years. I spent two years at Huffman Elementary teaching 4th grade with the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme before stepping into the gifted specialist role as a PACE teacher.
In my time outside of the classroom, you can find me at the yoga studio where I teach yoga and facilitate meditation When I'm not on my mat, I'm usually outside enjoying the weather--going on walks, reading in my hammock, lounging by the pool, hitting golf balls at the driving range, anything outdoors.
I'm looking forward to another amazing school year!
