She is also the grade level RTI chair, Yearbook Coordinator, and the Kindergarten Leadership Team representative and serves on the PBIS team. Mrs. Rackley graduated in 2009 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. She also holds a gifted endorsement. She started her career as a Life Skills paraprofessional before transitioning to the Brooks County Schools as a kindergarten teacher.
Mrs. Rackley grew up moving around Georgia as her father was assigned different churches to lead as a preacher. She graduated from Northside High School in Warner Robins. She currently attends Azalea City Church of God, which is where she met her husband. She has been married for ten years and has two beautiful children and one fur baby: Tate 4 and Emsley 1 and Scooter. Mrs. Rackley loves to exercise, vacation in the mountains or beach, take photographs, and bake.
Mrs. Rackley shines a very bright light at NBES. She builds positive relationships with her colleagues, students, and parents. Mrs. Rackley is passionate about teaching and learning. This is evident in her classroom instruction, interaction with students, and planning with colleagues. It is truly a pleasure to work with Mrs. Rackley and very deserving for her to represent North Brooks Elementary as the 2019-2020 Teacher of the Year.
