Hello! My name is Rachelle Baba (previously Ms. Hata) and I teach 4th grade. Previously, I have taught 2nd grade and 5th grade at John Muir School in San Bruno. I am so fortunate to be part of the Lafayette community since 2014.
I was born in San Francisco and then moved to San Bruno when I was young, which is where I currently reside. I graduated from San Francisco State and earned my BA in Liberal Studies with a minor in Criminal Justice. I highly value self-identity and compassion in the classroom. I want all of my students leaving with a sense of who they are and showing empathy towards one another.
Outside of school, my hobbies include watching sports, playing golf, and coaching basketball. I have coached high school basketball for the past 4 years at George Washington High School and Lowell High School and also an Asian league girls team. I also spend time within the Japanese American community volunteering and attending local events.
I look forward to a wonderful and inspiring year with my class and all it has to offer in 4th grade!
Hello Lafayette Community! My name is Ra Price and I teach 4th grade. Lafayette is a very special place and I am honored to be a part of this wonderful community. I have been a part of Lafayette since 2009. I have taught both 2nd grade and 4th grade.
I earned both my B.A. in Child and Adolescent Development with a School-Age Concentration and my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from San Francisco State University. I also earned my Masters of Education degree with a specialization in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of San Diego.
I grew up in the Central Valley and am currently living in San Francisco with my husband, Geoff and pet turtle. When I am not teaching, I love traveling, reading, hiking, and exploring new restaurants and foods. I also enjoy CrossFitting, weightlifting, and powerlifting. I love all things science-fiction and fantasy related.
As an educator, I am passionate about creating and fostering a culturally relevant, inclusive and responsive community where we are able to learn, appreciate, and value our individual differences and similarities through a socially just, anti-bias and anti-racist framework.
I am excited for us to be together this year and am looking forward to learning and growing with everyone in our community.
