Rachel Macchiarola – Parkside Elementary

Rachel is one of a kind at Parkside! She has been teaching for 12 years and this is her 8th year at Parkside. She taught Special Ed in 5th grade, general Ed in 2nd and 3rd grade. At Parkside she taught 2nd and 3rd grade students. She earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology & special education from Marist College and her master’s in child development birth-age 8 from Ball State University. She also has endorsements in special education and ESL. We love the wealth of knowledge she brings to Parkside. Her students say she is the nicest teacher ever and they said, “she likes nice clothing because she always wears the nicest clothes”. She is so nice and friendly with everyone. Parkside is so lucky to have Rachel!
