Chapel Talk: Rachel Garrett '10
On Monday, February 1, we welcomed alumna Rachel Garrett ‘10 as our speaker in Middle and Upper School Chapel. In her offering, Rachel encouraged students to remember “When you’re in middle and high school and you’re daydreaming about what your future life might look like, just know that things will never turn out precisely the way you planned them to.” She related this knowledge to her own life experience, and she also offered these words of advice to our community, emphasizing what she has learned over this past year: “...cherish each and every moment you have with others. Whether you’re in person or on Zoom or FaceTime, be fully present with them."
Rachel is a member of Episcopal Collegiate School’s Class of 2010. After graduating from her self-described “dream school,” University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2014 with a Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies, she worked for Teach for America for two years before attending Peabody College at Vanderbilt ‘17, where she earned a Masters of Education in Learning and Design. She currently works at Jackson Hole Community School where she is a Math Teacher, Experiential Education Coordinator, and 9th Grade Dean. While in Upper School at Episcopal, Rachel was an Honor Council member, Varsity Soccer player, Senior Class President, and has fond memories of participating in the Harry Potter Club.
