   Meet the Turtle Staff:

Miss Rachel, Teacher
Rachel Bullard

I am the teacher in the 2 year old Turtle class. This is my second year working at Derry Discovery Days. I am married and have 2 children, ages 8 and 4. My children have attended DDD for 7 years. In my free time, I love going to the pool and Hersheypark with my family, going on walks, shopping, going out to try new restaurants and reading all kinds of books. I graduated from Mansfield University in 2001 with a B.S in a psychology and went on to be a case worker for children in foster care. After staying home with my children for several years, I knew going to teach preschool would be a wonderful fit for me. I truly love coming to work with the kids and interacting with them everyday.

I am from Southern California and have enjoyed being a stay at home mom to my three boys for the last 12 years. I have a Bachelors' in business and spent several years in human resources, but feel my true calling is in teaching.  I have spent many years volunteering in my children's schools, church and sports events. I fell in love with Derry Discovery Days Preschool and when my son spent a year there, it felt like home. I am so blessed to help Miss Rachel in our Turtle class.

My children attended DDD preschool from the Turtle to the Butterfly class. My son is now in second grade and my daughter is in kindergarten. I am married and live on a ten-acre farmette with a few chickens, ducks and a dog. Prior to deciding to stay at home with my children and watch others, I worked as a nurse. In my free time, I enjoy cooking, gardening, shopping, drinking coffee, and most of all, spending time with my family. I love Derry Discovery Days and am so happy to be a part of this great preschool.
