Hi! My name is Rebecca Lake and I am the art teacher at McAuliffe Elementary. This is my dream job! I love coming to work everyday and working with creative students.
I was a classroom teacher before I was an art teacher and taught in sixth grade, fifth grade, third grade, and kindergarten. I loved all of those age groups so I feel blessed to be able to work with a wide range of ages in the art room.
This year at McAuliffe, we are focusing on our strengths. Each of us are uniquely designed to have certain areas where we are naturally talented. The staff participated in a "strength finder" assessment. My assessment showed that I love to create, I love new ideas, I look for the potential in everyone, and I love to help others find what they are good at and cultivate it.
On a more personal note, I am a wife and mom. My husband and I have been married for 17 years. We have three kids. James, my oldest, is in 10th grade at Marcus and he plays trumpet in the band. Charlece, my only girl, is in 8th grade at Lamar and is a cheerleader. Sam, my youngest, is in kindergarten at McAuliffe and plays soccer and is in gymnastics at Best Gymnastics.
