Fifth Grade

Ms. Rachel Armentrout is our 5th Grade teacher.

Meet Mrs. Rachel Armentrout

I am the youngest of four, and was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  Even though I still miss the first snowfall of the winter, I would much rather be catching some rays on the snow-white sand of our beautiful beach.  However, I will always be a faithful fan cheering on the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Teaching is my passion.  I have my Bachelor’s in Elementary Education, Gifted Certification, and my National Board Certification in Middle Childhood.  I am entering my 15th year teaching, with the past 11 years spent in the Gifted Classroom.  My fortes are Math and Science, and my classroom slogan is, “We are ALL Math People.”   I believe in teaching students the rewards found in discipline, responsibility, and hard work, as well as the blessings found in reaching out to help our community.

Recently, my husband and I have made this area our home: where we love boating, fishing, snorkeling, and swimming.  We have a Puggle named Penny, and a Miniature Dachshund named Stanley.

It is a gift to have the opportunity to teach in such an amazing school, surrounded by the salty air and sandy coast.  I am looking forward to challenging, engaging, and encouraging students to strive for excellence.  As John Dewey once said, “Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.”
