• Welcome to First Grade!


    My name is Rachel Goossens and I am thrilled to work with your child this year! This is my 5th year teaching, and 4th year teaching first grade. I was born and raised in Leesburg, and graduated from Tuscarora High School. It feels great getting to teach in my hometown!


    I earned both a Masters of Education Degree, and a Bachelors of Science degree from Old Dominion University. I am also currently attending George Mason University to earn a Reading Specialist Certification Degree. 


    When I am not at school, I am usually spending time with my husband and my dog, gardening, or reading a novel. Please reach out with any questions you have. I can be reached at rachel.goossens@lcps.org.


    I’m looking forward to a wonderful year of learning!
