Rapach, Laura (6th grade)

Hi and welcome to my classroom website!  I have been teaching ELA/SS at Eblen Intermediate since 2016.  Prior to that, I taught 3rd and 5th grade for 8 years in St. Charles, Illinois.  I also taught developmental English and math at Waubonsee Community College, in Illinois and ABTech, in Asheville.   While teaching in Illinois, I was honored as a runner-up Agriculture in the Classroom, Teacher of the Year for Kane County.

I have a bachelor's degree in English and Communications from DePaul University and a Master's degree in Teaching from National-Louis Univeristy.  I also have done post-graduate work in the effects of trauma on brain development. 

 I look forward to a great year here at Eblen Intermediate School!
