• Welcome to First Grade!

    Hello! My name is Rachel Knigge and this is my fourth year teaching 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 two dogs named Barley & Pilsner. During my time not at school, I enjoy listening to music, camping, visiting with friends and family, and taking care of my plants! 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.
