Ms. Makenzie Pahnisch

Hi! My name is Makenzie Pahnisch and this is my fourth year at Rucker with the fifth grade team. I teach all sections of Social Studies and one section of ELAR. I love Rucker Elementary and I'm so happy to be continuing my journey at such an outstanding school! I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa in the summer of 2015. I moved to Texas soon after graduating and have been loving Texas life ever since. My passion is teaching and I love being able to interact, teach, and learn with the Rucker kiddos every day. I've found not only are they learning from me, but I'm learning from them as well. 

I often travel back home to Iowa. I have a very supportive family and miss them every day. My trips occur multiple times a year and I cannot wait for holidays and summer to come so I can spend some precious time there. Every day I go home to my mischievous cocker spaniel named Jack. If I have free time, I enjoy shopping, discovering North Texas, curling up with a book, and making phone calls to my family back home. 

I cannot wait to go on this journey with you and watch you all prosper!
