Welcome to 2nd Grade!
Mrs. Rakestraw's Class
My name is Brooke Rakestraw. I was born and raised in Dallas, GA. I have been married to my husband Allen for 17 years. We have 3 beautiful children. Wade is 13 and attends McClure Middle School, Warner is 9 and is in 3rd grade here at Northside Elemetary, and Kensley is 6 and is in 1st grade here at Northside Elementary School. I also have a dog whom I adore named Brady.
My favorite things to do are spending time with friends and family, going to church, watching my children play sports, being outside, camping, and going to the beach. My favorite sports teams are the Atlanta Braves and Georgia Tech football! Go Jackets!
I graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Early Childhood Educaton in 2005 from the University of West Georgia. In 2010, I graduated with my Master's Degree in Reading Specializaion from Nova Southeastern University. This is my 13th year of teaching.

Teaching is my passion and I absolutely love what I am blessed to do everyday!! I love watching each student bloom throughout the school year!!
