Hi! I am Rachel Keket. I was born and raised in New Mexico. I attended BYU in Provo and graduated from BYU Hawaii in 2011. My degree is in International Cultural Studies with an emphasis in Communications. I really enjoy the diversity of the world and am fascinated by how people communicate and the beauty of each language and culture. While at school, I met my husband who is from Papua New Guinea. We now have 4 kids. Being married to an immigrant has given me insight into the struggles of coming to a new place and facing a new culture head on. I have worked in various professions but teaching is my favorite.
I now teach English in the Adult Education Program. After three years I can still say that I love it. Helping students connect with others and gain understanding and confidence with their communication is so important and so fulfilling. I am grateful to be part of a program that is geared towards helping people in this way.
