Rachel Runnels loves to see the pride and excitement in children’s eyes, “When they show off what they’ve learned,” here at The Summit. It melts her heart when the kids rush into her classroom with squeals of excitement and great big hugs. Rachel has earned her Master’s Degree of Arts in Teaching and Learning with a specialization in Curriculum and Instruction. She has invested nine years as a preschool teacher and is a certified teacher K-5. Crafting, and kayaking are some of her loves, as is football—Go Gators!
