Mrs. Rachel Buck
About: In her 17 years as the Student Advisory Board advisor at the Connecticut IB Academy, Rachel Buck has worked with students to organize and plan more events than she can count. Just when she thought she had it figured out, COVID struck and made Student Councils everywhere reevaluate their events, their effectiveness, and how they could encourage engagement in the school community in multiple ways. She is passionate about working with student leaders and creating events that support a positive school climate and engage all members of the school community. In addition to her work with the Student Advisory Board, she has also advised the CIBA Interact club for 13 years and the Abelon Committee for 16 years and taught math at CIBA for the past 20 years.
