Vicki Raab | Educator, Athlete, Traveler, Adventurer

 

Vicki Raab Photo 1Vicki Raab holds a B.A. in History, with a minor in Psychology and Education from Rutgers University, Douglass College. She also received her M.Ed. degree in Social Studies Education by completing a five-year program in the Graduate School of Education at Rutgers University. Currently, she is in her third year teaching U.S. History and Sociology at West Morris Central High School in Chester, New Jersey. She is also an advisor for the Junior Class, Future Educators Club, the Gay-Straight Alliance, and is also an assistant coach of the field hockey team (and is so proud of her Wolfpack State Champions!)

In her spare time, Vicki loves playing field hockey, traveling to far off locations, going for a nice long runs, bike riding, and seeking out any challenge. Vicki has been a field hockey goalkeeper since 1999, playing in middle school, high school, at Rutgers, and currently in a women’s league. She has been actively involved in obstacle races such as the MudManX, Spartan Race, and the infamous Tough Mudder, where she tackled 13 miles and 27 obstacles, including an arctic ice plunge and some serious electrocution! Most importantly, Vicki loves to travel when she has the opportunity. So far, she has traveled to Mexico, Jamaica, and Spain; her sights are now set on Italy and Australia! One day she hopes to set foot on every continent (except maybe Antarctica…).

Vicki is returning to Blueprint for 2015, but this time is very excited to be starting a program at Georgetown University as a Program Director! This is her third year working at Blueprint. Previously, she was a Psychology Instructor and subsequently a Program Director at the Lehigh University program. She sincerely hopes to make a lasting, memorable impact on each student this summer, and hopes that this year will be one that she and her students will always remember! She hopes to make a summer home at Blueprint and help make the program unforgettable for you, too!
