Hi, my name is Rachelle Rodriguez. I love kids and I love art so I love being the art teacher at the best school in town, Carmel Elementary. I am a Hooiser by birth and graduated from Ball State University with a Bachelor's degree in Visual Art Education. Then, I moved to sunny Southwest Florida and taught art and graduated from Florida Gulf Coast University with my Master's degree in Elementary Education. I am fortunate to have taught in the art room and in the regular classroom. The 2015-2016 school year will be my seventh year teaching in Carmel Clay Schools. Creating artwork and working with kids is so much fun and rewarding. I love my job!
