Miss Rachel Oswalt
Hi! My name is Rachel Oswalt and this is my seventh year of teaching, but my first year at Horizon Elementary! I received my Bachelor's of Science degree in Elementary Education in 2014 from Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, IL. I taught for five years in Florida, teaching one year in first grade and four years in fourth grade. I taught for one year in Nashville, teaching fourth grade, as well. This year I will be teaching fifth grade social studies. I am very passionate about working with students and setting them up for a lifetime of success. I strive to help students set goals and teach them tools to reach their goals and beyond. I believe my greatest strength is building relationships with students and working alongside their families to ensure their success. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, going to the beach, and reading! I am looking forward to an amazing year at Horizon!
