Mrs. Raquel Koehler
My name is Raquel Koehler, and I currently teach first grade at Purple Sage Elementary. I have been married to my prince charming for more than twenty wonderful years and have four beautiful daughters who always manage to keep me on my toes. I have been teaching children since 2004. Purple Sage has been a wonderful place for both me and my girls. I feel so blessed to be a part of such a kind and remarkable community, one that truly knows what it means to put kids first. I have always wanted to be a teacher, and I know in my heart that I am right where I am supposed to be.
I received my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from Northwest Nazarene University. I graduated Summa Cum Laude, which was a huge accomplishment for me. As an educator, I believe that every child has the ability to learn and that it is my responsiblity to help them reach their full potential.
During the warm Idaho months, I enjoy spending time with my family in the great outdoors. I especially love hunting and fishing alongside my husband. I also enjoy camping, hiking, UTV riding, shopping, and crafting. During the winter months, you will most likely find me curled up in a blanket, next to a warm fire, watching a romantic comedy.
I am passionate about first grade, and I am excited to be your child's teacher!
