Rachel Ritchey

West Clermont Local Schools
Early Childhood Intervention Specialist
Rachel Ritchey, Miss Rachel to her preschoolers, has been an Early Childhood Intervention Specialist in public schools for over 10 years. For 7 years, she was a classroom teacher in an integrated preschool classroom; she stayed home with her children for 2 years and has been back as an Itinerant Preschool Teacher for 3 years.
During her time as a stay-at-home mom, she and her husband became foster parents; this quickly opened her eyes to trauma and led her to seeking more information. Since then, Rachel has been to several trauma trainings and has become a Certified Trauma-Competent Trainer. Rachel is passionate about getting this information into the hands of all teachers who are on the front lines battling for our children and their futures.
