Rachel Binkley was born and raised in Colorado and is currently a math teacher at CEC. After originally receiving her B.S. in mathematics and teaching certificate, she felt that she needed more life experience and travel before committing herself to the classroom. She remembered her favorite teachers being able to not only offer her education about the curriculum, but also inspiration and advice about the world. After spending time applying math in many business situations, and living abroad in Europe, she returned to Colorado and to teaching. During her free time Ms. Binkley continues to seek out new experiences which she can share with her students including spending time teaching in Costa Rica. Most recently, Ms. Binkley has finished earning her Master’s Degree in Teaching and Learning, with an emphasis in Mathematics in order to teach college level mathematics and concurrent enrollment classes. She looks forward to working with CEC students this year!
