Short Biography
Dr. Rach has taught at Gallaudet since 1991, and has been a member of the Gallaudet community since 1988 when she entered the MA program in Linguistics. Her dissertation focus was on the topic of literacy demands of Gallaudet graduates in the workplace. Dr. Rach has focused professionally on English literacy for second language learners, and has taught mostly Freshmen and Sophomores.

In the General Studies Program, Dr. Rach coordinates the assessment program, and works with faculty on program and course improvement using assessment data. Her interest and certification in using the Bar-On EQ Emotional Intelligence instrument has enabled her to facilitate the EQ assessment within the GS program, and the FYS class, GSR 101 specifically.

Dr. Rach planned and implemented the General Studies 4th week course and peer feedback mechanism which now requires all instructors/faculty members teaching GSR to collect and use data from peers and students early in the semester in order to facilitate timely course planning that meets the needs of current students.

She enjoys chatting with colleagues about teaching, reading books about teaching, reading other great books both fiction and non-fiction, and spending time with her family in Silver Spring, Maryland.
