Mrs. Rachel Vanderburg

My name is Rachel Vanderburg, and this is my 11th year in education, with 8 of those being in the classroom. This is my fourth year at Shields, and my second year teaching Special Education in the Resource ELAR setting. I graduated from Howard Payne University in 2012, and am a 2009 Waxahachie High School graduate. I am so excited to be here and build relationships at Red Oak ISD!

My husband and I live in Waxahachie and we have three children, all who attend Red Oak ISD schools. Our family loves to spend time together by taking walks, going to the zoo, aquariums, museums, going to the driving range, and going camping. We have two dogs named Tribble and Maggie, and they keep us on our toes and laughing!  

Thank you for trusting me with your child this year. We are going to have a great year learning, growing, and solidifying our reading skills!
