Hello, and a big thank you to parents and students for checking out this page! My name is Rachel Wellman, this is my second year at Manor High School, and I am extremely excited to be here. Prior to arriving in Manor, I taught in Houston ISD for two years, and South Korea for the two years prior to that. I graduated from the University of Texas in 2010 with a degree in English and a minor in Education.
I believe education has the power to level the playing field, and all students should have access to an equitable education. Therefore, I believe my role is to teach your children, but also to be a mentor and an advocate for every student. I encourage parents to reach out to me if they have questions, concerns, or suggestions on how I can best support your child on their learning journey.
Email is my preferred method of communication, but if you leave a voicemail I will do my best to respond within 24 hours. Please see my attached syllabus for more detailed information on the course and my classroom expectations. Tutorials will be held every Tuesday from 4:15-5:00. Beginning in February, intensive STAAR tutorials will be held bi-weekly. More information on this will be supplied regarding STAAR tutorials at the end of January.
I am located in room G215, and my email address is email@example.com
. I am looking forward to the 2016-2017 school year, and I hope you are as well!
