About Me

Books.png‚Äč     Hello! My name is Rachel Mancarella and I am excited to be teaching third grade at South Side Elementary again this year!

About me...I live in Oneida with my husband and two daughters. Our pets include one dog and two cats! I love to read, do word puzzles, travel, and spend time with my family! 

My Education...I grew up in Ogdensburg, NY and graduated from Ogdensburg Free Academy. I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from SUNY Geneseo and a Masters of Science in Teaching degree from LeMoyne College. 

My Teaching Philosophy...I grew up in a family full of teachers, including my mother and father, as well as my grandmother and grandfather. These role models led me to become the teacher that I am today. I believe that every child has their own strengths and gifts to share with the world and I will work diligently to develop these in each student in my classroom.
