I am excited to introduce myself as the new Resource Room Teacher at Twin City, my name is Rachel Townsend. Twin City is very special to me as my son went to Twin City for his whole elementary school career. My two younger children will attend Twin City in a few years.
A little bit about my educational background is that I earned my Bachelor degree through Western Washington University with certification in Special Education and Elementary Education. I feel that working for the Stanwood Camano School District is like coming home as I completed both my Special Education and Elementary Education student teaching at Utsalady Elementary School on Camano Island. After completing my student teaching, I did 2 years of substitute teaching for the district. The last 4 years, I have been working in Marysville School District. My first year in Marysville, I was the Learning Assistant Program Teacher and the Resource Room Teacher. The past 3 years, I have been a Resource Room Teacher.
In my spare time, I enjoy going places with my husband and 3 children. We enjoy going swimming, to the beach, and riding four-wheelers as a family. My absolute favorite thing to do is going on vacation in our RV with my family.
I look forward to working and collaborating with each and every one of my families. I always welcome parent input and suggestions as you know your child the best. Please feel free to contact me via email or phone anytime with and questions, concerns, or ideas. I am always happy and eager to help.
