Rachel Gryak

I was born in New Haven, Connecticut and moved to Ann Arbor this summer.  I am so excited to be teaching Spanish at Mitchell and Allen Schools.  I am a Spanish language learner myself and learned Spanish while living in Tegucigalpa, Honduras and traveling to Spain, México, Puerto Rico, The Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador and Guatemala. 

I graduated from Geneva College with degrees in Elementary and Special Education.  I obtained my Master’s degree from Southern Connecticut State University in TESOL, Bilingual, and Multicultural education.  I have been teaching Spanish and bilingual education for 15 years in schools in Honduras, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut. 

When I’m not at school I enjoy reading, cooking, and traveling.  My husband and I also enjoy exploring the world around us by hiking, biking, and kayaking.
