• Welcome to Grade 1! 

    Hi! My name is Rachel Menard.  I will be your child’s 1st grade teacher for the 2018-19 school year.  This will be my 1st year teaching at University Avenue ACES, and my 10th year teaching.  I live in Circle Pines with my husband (who is also a teacher), Nate, and our cat, Layla. I am so excited for this school year!

    In 2008 I graduated from Ferris State University with my Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education. I continued my education while teaching and earned my Masters Certificate in Educational Technology from Michigan State University in 2016. I continue to take classes and consider myself a life-long learner.
    Thank you for supporting your student's education! I am excited to work with your child and watch their growth. Together we can help your child achieve success!
