Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Rachel Morelli. This is my 6th year teaching Kindergarten and my 1st year working with Mrs. Harvey and our Room 15 family here at Oaks Road Elementary! We are a great team and I am so glad that you and your child are joining our team this year! Here is a little information I would like to share about myself.
Education: I received my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education from East Carolina University in 2009 and my master's degree from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington in 2011. I was involved in an Early Literacy Research Project through East Carolina University for guided reading from 2015-2017. I had the opportunity to travel to Philadelphia this summer to participate in an AVID Training. I am excited to bring the AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) program to Oaks Road. Once a learner, Always a learner!
