Summary

My name is Rachel Zeldin and I am currently a senior at Longwood University. I am pursuing a degree in Liberal Studies as well as pursuing a minor in Communication Studies. I will complete my degree in December and upon graduating my plan is to teach in a  elementary school located in Virginia.
