Hello and welcome to second grade! My name is Rachel Echsner and I'm happy to welcome you to Malley Drive Elementary. I received my bachelor's degree from University of Colorado at Boulder in anthropology while studying elementary education. I started my teaching career in 2017, and I've been at Malley ever since. I grew up in Longmont, Colorado with a love for the mountains and traveling. I've visited over 20 countries, and I lived in Chiang Mai, Thailand for some time in college. I'm looking forward to spending this wonderful school year with you!
