Short Biography

After completing her Bachelor's degree, Raschelle began working for the Head Start preschool program in Kansas City, Missouri.

Raschelle left Head Start to teach 1st grade in a neighboring school district. While teaching, she completed her Master's degree in Deaf Education and began working on her Ph.D. Towards the final months of her doctoral program, Raschelle accepted a position as assistant professor at Barton College in Wilson, NC. There, she taught both Deaf and Special Education courses. Currently, Raschelle has taught at  Gallaudet University for three years. She has taught courses in the teaching deaf students with disabilities on-line certificate program, assessment courses, and curriculum.
