Dr. Rachel Butiko

My name is Dr. Rachel Butiko, and I am a certified ELAR and ESL teacher, Master Reading Teacher (MAT), Principal as an instructional leader and working on my NBCT. I teach ESL Beginners and coordinate ESL and LPAC activities on campus. I graduated from Kenyatta University in Kenya with a Bachelor of Education degree in secondary education, Dominican University with an M.Ed. in Curriculum Instruction (ESL), and Walden University with a doctorate degree in Leadership in Literacy and Reading. This is my 15th year at HBMS and I love being a warrior. As an educator, I believe that every student can learn and be successful when provided with appropriate support. My goal is to create a learning environment where all students can take risks, challenge themselves to realize their potential, be inspired, motivated, and equipped with skills for life.

This year, I will continue coaching teachers in Second Language Acquisition (SLA) strategies and providing in-class support in Math and Science. I am excited to be part of your academic journey.
