Hello! My name is Rachael Cage, and I am one of the special education teachers at Freedom Elementary. I get to work with your child this year! I am looking forward to working with you and your family. 

I am a bit of a nerd and absolutely love to read. I also love swimming and camping. I was raised by a military family, so I have had the privilege of living in Japan and I was born in Germany. I love the color green, sour gummy worms, and sweet tea. Chick-Fil-A and Mexican food are my absolute favorites.
