Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Raechel Pankey
Hello, my name is Raechel Pankey and I have taught at Polenta Elementary for 3 years and West Clayton Elementary for 1 year. I graduated from East Carolina University in 2015 with a degree in Special Education General Curriculum. Before getting my degree, I worked in a Child Development Center. This experience has provided me with the opportunity to see how students develop from year to year. This opportunity has allowed me to provide the building blocks to help children continue learning and growing. I married my husband, Andrew, last year and together we have 2 dogs (both Beagles). In our spare time we enjoy going to the beach and walking through downtown Clayton. My favorite candy is snickers and my favorite soda is Diet Coke. My favorite color is pink.
