Rachel Wallace grew up in a small fishing town on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. She graduated from Vassar College in 2020 with a dual degree in German and Russian studies. In Austria, she will be teaching at two schools in and around Innsbruck. In the past several years, she has also spent time living in Denmark, Germany, Austria, and Russia. She loves speaking and learning foreign languages and deepening cultural understanding through language. In the past, she has taught German and Danish at a summer language immersion camp. Otherwise, she enjoys creative pursuits including photography, videography, music, and writing, as well as reading and sewing. She is looking forward to experiencing life in the mountains for the first time and hopes to spend most of her free time in the outdoors.
