About Rachel Weiland

I am new to Wheeler this year and recently moved back to Atlanta from Denver, CO. I grew up in Cobb County and taught in Cobb for a year and a half before I decided to move across the country for a new adventure! When I am not at school, I teach Pilates fitness classes and enjoy spending time with friends and family.<br /><br />I have a strong background in both Autism and Intellectual Disabilities. I have a younger brother who has a severe intellectual disability and grew up attending Cobb County Schools. Growing up with a sibling with significant needs made me realize I was meant to be a special education teacher from an early age.<br /><br />I went to college at the University of Vermont where I received a Bachelors in Science in communication sciences and disorders, and I completed my Masters' degree in Special Education - Multiple and Severe Disabilities from Georgia State University. <br /><br />If you need to reach out, please feel free to email or call. I will typically be able to respond to emails much faster than phone calls.
