Meet Mrs. House

Hi!! My name is Mrs. Racquel House.  I am excited to have the opportunity to teach your child this year.  Together, we will make this year one of the best!

This is my fifth year as a teacher, and my fourth year at Hollywood Park Elementary School.  I have previously taught 1st grade and 2nd grade, but third grade is my favorite.  Laughing

I am very fortunate to have such a wonderful class of third graders this year.  Hollywood Park Elementary is a great school, and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

I grew up right here in Broward county and went to elementary school just down the street.  I recently got married.  (That's why the web address is rlavigne.)  I graduated from Nova Southeastern University in November of 2005 with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Psychology.  Last summer I earned my certification in Exceptional Student Education.  In addition, I just earned my Master's degree in Curriculum, Instruction & Technology from Nova Southeastern this summer.  I am enjoying the continuation of my education.

In addition to teaching third grade, I am also the Student Council Sponsor this year.  I enjoy participating in helping to improve our already great school! 

Outside of the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading a good book, scrapbooking and crafting.  

Teaching is my passion.  I can't imagine doing anything else.  I am looking forward to a year full of excitement and learning!
