Cross Categorical Special Education with Mrs. Decker

Welcome to our class!

Room 208

About the Teacher: 

Hello, My name is Rachael Decker and I am the cross categorical special education teacher for third, fourth, and fifth grades during the 22-23 school year. I am working towards my Masters degree in special education. I graduated with two degrees, a regular education and special education degree, from Carthage college. I have worked in education for 11 years. I currently live in Union Grove with my two daughters, Vivian (5) & Lillian (9), and two cats, Shadow & Luno. In my free time I enjoy arts/crafts, crocheting, board & video games, museums, escape rooms, lifelong learning, and going on adventures. I love foxes, the colors teal and lavender, autumn, Halloween, and fruit. I believe our similarities and differences are the interlocking puzzle pieces needed to create this beautiful picture we call life. I pride myself on providing a safe classroom that welcomes and celebrates every individual. I am eager and excited to get to know your child, meet them at their level, and provide them the support and encouragement he/she needs to lift themselves to new heights. It is a pleasure to have you as a part of our crew and I look forward to getting to know your family better.
