Ms. Goosens

Hello First Grade students and parents! My name is Rachel Goossens and I am so excited to be your teacher this year. This is my third year of teaching, and my second year teaching First Grade at Buffalo Trail.

I am originally from Leesburg, Virginia, and have attended LCPS schools from Kindergarten all the way to 12th grade! I attended college in Norfolk, Virginia at Old Dominion University. There, I earned both my Bachelor of Science degree in Interdisciplinary Studies, as well as my Master of Science in Education degree. I am now happy to live back in my hometown with my husband and our dog. In addition to teaching, I love spending time outdoors, traveling, and doing loads of DIY projects. 
If you have any questions please feel free to email me. My email is
