Miss Rachael Salmen

8th Grade Science Teacher, Team Integrity

Hello! My name is Rachael Salmen, and I teach 8th grade science at Southview Middle School. I have been teaching in Ankeny since August 2019.

I attended and graduated from Concordia University of Seward, Nebraska with my bachelor's degree in May of 2016. I moved to Iowa that same year to start my teaching career in Des Moines. Science is a passion of mine and I love to share my passion with others!

Science is a phenomenom based course where students can work collaboritively on activities that build both content knowledge and problem-solving skills.

In my free time, I enjoy watching Netflix, reading, playing board and yard games and cuddling with my two kitties. 

You can find me in room 2206 at Southview Middle School.

The best times to reach me are before school and after school.

Email is the most efficient way to reach me. Feel free to contact me at any time, and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
