    Teacher Biography
    Mrs. Rachel Wickham is ecstatic about beginning her sixth year at Freedom High School! Mrs. Wickham grew up in Houston, Texas, but she has been living in this beautiful state for about half her life and loves it, especially in the Fall. Mrs. Wickham attended James Madison University, and double majored in Theatre and English; she also has her Master's degree in Teaching. Her passion is for theatre, so if you haven't gotten the Theatre Bug yet, you will! Outside of school, Mrs. Wickham enjoys hiking in the Shenandoah, belting songs in her car, and eating sushi. She also takes pictures of her cats as a hobby and will share them with anyone who is interested! She is looking forward to another fantastic year at Freedom in the Fine Arts department!
