Raquel FreiwirthSenior Kindergarten Aide
Raquel was born and raised in Mexico City. She attended Jewish day school from preschool through high school.
In early 1993, Raquel moved to Vancouver and was a stay-at-home mom until she was offered to lead the two-year-old program at Beth Tikvah Synagogue in Richmond, an opportunity she could not resist because of her innate love for children. She ran that program from 2007 to 2012.
In 2012 Raquel started working as a teacher-on-call at VTT, and was then offered a permanent position with the school. She has been on faculty ever since.
Raquel has a Bachelor’s degree in graphic design. In 2014, she earned her Early Childhood Educator Assistant license.
When not contributing her enormous creativity to VTT, Raquel loves spending time with her three children. She also likes a good book, good music, taking pictures and enjoying the company of her friends.
