Mrs. Rachel Riordan

Welcome to 1st Grade at Rosedale Elementary! My name is Rachel Riordan and this is my 10th year teaching at Rosedale. I began my teaching career in 1995 where I taught in Dearborn Heights and then transferred to Livonia Public Schools. I have taught all levels K-2nd since then. My children attended Rosedale Elementary as well, so I have a long history here!

This is a very busy year for your child and I will spend a great deal of time encouraging independence, kindness and a love of learning!! I am excited to see the growth your child will have this year and I will spend my days getting to know your child individually.  I am always open to parent communication, so I encourage you to reach out to me with any questions or concerns you have.

Our school year goes much more smoothly if I understand your child and family. Please don't hesitate to let me know information about your child that will help us be successful!


Please use email or Dojo Messaging to reach me as it is difficult for me to retrieve phone messages during the day. Thanks!
