Rachel Mickelson is excited to be part of the first team of University Innovation Fellows at Utah State University. She is studying Elementary as well as Special Education. Being the oldest of four children, Rachel has been in some sort of teaching role most of her life. After ending up in rural Montana, she had the opportunity to gain a substantial amount of teaching experience that solidified her path towards an education degree.

Attending USU has only enhanced Rachel’s passion for teaching. With the help of the education program, special education program, and amazing professors and advisors, Rachel has been able to learn new skills that will aid her in providing the best education possible for her students. 
Rachel believes that every student deserves to have an education that best fits them and feels passionate about her role in providing that for her students by creating more integration between general and special education classrooms.
