Hello My Name Is...

Ms. Williams


Hello, my name is Rachel Williams. I am very excited to be teaching your children this year. This is my second year with Roanoke City Schools, but my first year at Westside. I am very pleased to have joined such an amazing school. I will be teaching your children reading, math, spelling, and science this year. Your children will be going to Ms. Keen's class for social studies. 

I am a graduate of Radford University. I love to learn and I strive keep to learning everyday. I love learning about new reading strategies and techniques to make every child a successful reader. I also enjoy learning new languages and musical instruments. I want nothing more than to see your child succeed. Please feel free to contact me anytime if you have questions or concerns.
