Rachelle Hata

Room 220

Hello! My name is Rachelle Baba (previously Ms. Hata) and I teach 4th grade. I am so excited to be teaching at Lafayette! 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 really young. I attended 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 are watching sports, playing golf, and coaching basketball. I have coached high school basketball for the past 3 years at George Washington High School and Lowell High School and also an Asian league girls team. 

I look forward to a wonderful and inspiring year with my class and all it has to offer in 4th grade!

Ms. Price 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 received both my undergraduate degree and teaching credential from San Francisco State University.  I also earned my Masters of Education degree from the University of San Diego.  I have been a part of the Lafayette community since 2009.  I have taught both 2nd grade and 4th grade.  

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 CrossFit, weightlifting, and powerlifting.  I love all things related to Star Wars, Harry Potter, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

I am excited for us to be together this year and am looking forward to learning and growing with everyone in our community.
