Meet the New Staff: Rachel Hackney

To start the 2017-18 school year, we would like to take time to introduce the community to all of our new staff members! Each week, we will introduce two new members of the Deer Park family with a short question and answer session.  We will continue this until you have met every new face at Deer Park!
