• Welcome to First Grade!

    Hello! My name is Rachel Knigge and this is my first year teaching first grade at Banting! I am so excited for a great school year, full of lots of fun and learning! 

    About The Teacher:

    I was born and raised in Wisconsin. I have three brothers and a golden lab named Barley. During my time not at school, I enjoy listening to music, visiting with friends and family, and traveling! I grew up in the Waukesha area and then attended the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. There, I earned a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education and a certification in English as a Second Language, to be able to best teach kids who speak all different languages. During my education at UWM, I did my student teaching at Banting and became very familiar with the school and community. I'm so happy to be back at such a great school!
