Mrs. Rachel Perkins
Hello Purple Sage!
My name is Rachel Perkins and I am thrilled to be joining the Middleton community this year. This will be my 12th year of teaching and I have taught most of my years in Texas where I was born and raised. I graduated cum laude from Abilene Christian University, which is located in Abilene, Texas. I have taught kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade, but the majority of my teaching has been in 2nd. I love what I do! I look forward to building new relationships each year, creating a "School Family" in my classroom, and watching students blossom throughout the year. They work hard in my class, but we also have fun through engaging and hands-on learning activities. I get a front row seat to witness their huge accomplishments while in my class and it is so rewarding.
My family and I relocated here in June 2021 for my husband’s career and we have been exploring this stunning area ever since. Moving up here was initially a shock to my system, but we are really enjoying life up here in the beautiful mountains and the gorgeous Boise River. You don’t see that in Texas.
My husband and I just celebrated our 20th Anniversary! We have two awesome boys: Mason is a freshman and Tucker is in 7th grade. When I am not at work, you can bet I'll be doing something with my family! We love being out in nature through camping and hiking, but we also love sports. Our boys are very active in sports throughout the year, so I'm typically cheering loudly for them at one location or another. We are definitely embracing the Idaho way of life.
