Rachel Eckler

My name is Rachel Eckler, this is my second year teaching in Milton however, it’s my eleventh year teaching. I am originally from Rochester, NY and I earned my bachelor’s degree in Physical Education from SUNY Cortland. After that, I moved to Long Island where I taught full time while earning my master’s degree from Adelphi University. Since then I have moved several times, eventually landing in Plattsburgh, NY where I met my husband. His job brought us here to Vermont where we have settled down, and started our family. We have a son who is almost a year old. We also have an 8 year old fur-baby dog. I love skiing, hiking, kayaking, and being on the lake and outside. We are loving life in the Green Mountain state!
Currently I teach Physical Education, grades 5-8 with my co-teacher, Mr. Weaver. We are working together to build a community of physically literate learners, and to instill confidence, and a desire to be physically active for life.
