Hi there. My name is Rachael Pederson, and I am originally from Eagan, MN. I attended Grinnell College, in Grinnell, IA, where I was a history major and obtained my secondary teaching credential for both English and Social Studies.
After graduating, I moved to Lesotho and taught MS/HS in Southern Africa. I then taught at Timber Lake HS and Sully Buttes HS. Although most of my five years of teaching experience has been with high school students, I look forward to joining Gettysburg's MS team; middle school is where I first became passionate about reading and writing, and I am excited to help students discover the power language holds.
This year, in addition to teaching, I will be the oral interp. advisor and helping with MS Student Council.
