Ms. Rachel Kelsey

Greetings, Timberwolves!

I am so thrilled to be joining the Pack for my first year teaching! I’ve been in Northern Virginia just under two years and found Trailside in my second year, where my pursuit to become an educator really started to take effect. Prior to my experience at Trailside, I was taking jobs for the sole purpose of saving money to acquire a Masters of Special Education (which I am still working on) because becoming an educator has been a dream for quite some time! 

I grew up outside of Baltimore, I lived in Chicago for 6 years where I received my Bachelors degree and began my career, and by some stroke of luck, I landed in Loudoun County, where I am beyond fortunate to teach the brilliant minds of this community! I am looking forward to creating a community in our classroom where we can collaborate and support each other as we strive toward success. My hope is that my classroom will be a safe place to try and grow.
