Ms. Rachel Branum

Hi, my name is Rachel Branum and this will be my 4th year at H. E. Corley. I am a graduate of Lander University where I received my Bachelors in Early Childhood Education as well as my Primary Montessori certification. I obtained my Masters in Montessori Education at St. Catherine University in 2020. I am currently working on my EdD in Educational Leadership from Liberty University and a Masters in Lower Montessori Education from Lander University. I love Montessori education and I LOVE sharing about it with anyone who walks through my door. 
When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my family and visiting my niece (6) and nephew (3) in Charleston. I love reading, pretending to know how to cook, and relaxing with my cat named Kitty!
