My name is Rachel Mersch, and I have been teaching at Washburn since 2012. I have taught Kindergarten, second grade, and math and reading intervention. I received my undergraduate degrees and master’s degree (M.Ed) from the University of Minnesota. My husband and I live in Minneapolis with our kids, Emma and James, who keep us very busy! I am passionate about the students and families that I serve, and I am looking forward to getting to know our classroom family. It is going to be a great year!
