Rachel Sivells is from Orlando, Florida. She teaches American Sign Language to 9th-12th grade at the Tilden Campus. I love Jesus, I am married to my best friend, I am a Mom to 3 incredible children, I love to read, go running, be at the beach or pool, and spend time with family and friends. Her favorite Bible verse is Proverbs 22:1 Her greatest influence is her father because he lost his hearing as a young child and has overcome more hardships than anyone else she knows. His love for Christ, his incredible work ethic, his love for others, and his ability to overcome obstacles continue to inspire her each and every day.

“My desire for my students is that they know they are loved by their Creator, that they have an incredible purpose planned for their lives, and that they embrace not only the language of the Deaf but learn to embrace their culture with respect and sincerity, and love.”
