Dr. Harms has taught for Corban’s undergraduate and graduate education programs for several years. She is also an elementary school principal in Salem-Keizer and brings relevance and expertise that helps Corban maintain strong bonds with K-12 public and private schools. Her experience as a teacher and administrator is a positive influence as we prepare effective and compassionate teachers who make a difference wherever they serve.
Rachael married her best friend, Shane, in 1993, and they have four adult children, two dogs, and two cats. For fun she likes to kayak, read, quilt, and knit.
“I chose Corban because preparing teachers is a joy, and being able to do so within the body of Christ is an even greater joy! It is a privilege to be able to work in a setting that encourages the expression of our faith.”
