Degrees and Certifications:
1st Grade Teacher
Hello! My name is Sandi Rael and this is my second year teaching at Bear Creek Elementary. I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education, an emphasis in English as a Second Language, and a minor in reading from the University of Northern Colorado. In the summer of 2015 I moved to beautiful Colorado Springs to teach fifth grade in Widefield for two years.
Since my first day of kindergarten, I knew that I wanted to become a teacher, and it is an amazing feeling to do what I love every day. Watching students develop deeper knowledge of the world around them and persevere through obstacles, is what makes me proud to be a teacher.
When I am not at school: I enjoy playing with my fur babies Lily and Cash, using my imagination with my nephews Tommy and Bobby, kickboxing, and spending time with my husband.
