Reiko Simpson

My name is Rae Simpson.

This is my 10th year as a special education teacher and second year at Borah Elementary School. I graduated from Central Washington University with Bachelor's and Master’s degrees in psychology. While I raised two sons, I became a special education teacher. I love working in an elementary school, and students at Borah make me smile every day.

I was born and raised in Japan. I lived in Ellensburg, Washington for schooling. I also lived in Seattle and San Diego, where my husband was stationed. We moved to Coeur d’Alene 13 years ago. Our sons are grown (19 and 22 years old), and I live in a quiet house with my husband. 

When I am not at school, I enjoy hiking, gardening, painting, and cooking.
