4th Grade - Rm 211

Name and Grade

Ms. Rachel Grgin • 4th Grade

Where are you From?

I was born in Chicago but grew up in the suburb of Palatine.  

If you could travel to anywhere in the world, where would it be?

I absolutely love to travel. I want to see as much of the world as possible! I think the next place on my list would have to be Australia. I want to see all the sights and go scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef. I have also never traveled that far from home so it would be something new.  

What is one book that everyone must read?

I recently finished reading The Hunger Games trilogy. They are great books for students as well as adults to read! It's also fun to read the books and then go see the movies.  

Who was your favorite teacher growing up?

At first I was so scared of my 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Turner, because everyone said that she was super strict. She ended up being my favorite teacher because she cared so much about us and set high expectations for us. I still keep in contact and visit with her.  

What do you like most about Goudy?

I love the diversity of the school. It is so interesting to learn about other people and cultures and I am able to do this through the staff and students. The staff is so friendly and nice also!
