Rachelle Dasal is a 6th grade math teacher at VMS.  She has been teaching for 3 years.  She began her teaching career in Missouri, teaching computers for 500 Kinder-4th grade students.  Her passion for teaching comes from building relationships with her students.  Dasal says, "My goal is that every student knows that there is an adult in their life who truly cares about them."  She does this by creating a safe and welcoming classroom.  In her classroom, it is ok to mess up.  Her policy is, "If you do not try, you'll never learn.  I try to teach students not only how to solve math problems, but how to navigate life."

In her free time Mrs. Dasal likes to sing, talk in funny accents, play board/card games with family and friends, play with her dog, travel with her husband, laugh, and do photography.  She says, "I have sung my whole life and one of my (and the students') favorite things to do in class during a brain break or a fun math day is to sing to the students."  Family is important to Dasal as well.  She has a maltipoo named Eve that she and her husband adore.  Together they "travel, explore, and learn about other people's culture."  She does photography as a part-time job too.  "I love being able to capture moments for people!"

Erikka Douglas is VMS's Self-Contained LABS teacher.  It is her first year teaching, but has been working at VMS for 4 years.  She has really enjoyed the transition into teaching and taking on her own classroom.  As she's watched her students learn how to solve problems without her help, it makes her so proud.  "Whether it's math, reading, writing, or behavior, I love watching one of them conquer something we've worked on for a long time on their own".


In her free time, Ms. Douglass enjoys listening to music and writing.
