About Ms. Banta:
Rachael has taught junior kindergarten for many years in Lutheran Schools and churches. She chose Early Childhood Education as her career because she believes early learning gives students a stronger start. She feels it is an honor to provide many with their very first experience of being students. Additionally, she is now the director of our Learning Edge. She has a passion for helping identify learning obstacles and offering positive solutions that encourage success. She says there is nothing better than hearing a child say, “Ahhhh, I get it!” When Ms. Banta is not here at school, she loves spending time with her two children, Samuel and Abigail, being an active member and onsite Wedding Coordinator for Our Savior Lutheran Church, reading, doing yoga, dancing and traveling.
