Rachel Lemos
7th Grade Homeroom Teacher
About The Teacher
My name is Rachel Lemos. This school year, 2017-2018, will be my twelfth year at St. Luke. This year I am taking on the role of the seventh grade homeroom teacher; however, I teach the English Language Arts curriculum to the sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students. During the 2014-2015 school year I organized, implemented, and facilitated the Mustang Monthly Newspaper Club, and it will continue into its fourth year this year!

The Language Arts curriculum consists of several components. The English curriculum includes Advanced Daily Oral Language (D.O.L.), Vocabulary Workshops, and the Writing Process. The Writing Process covers many basic and advanced genres of writing as well as project-based writings. The reading curriculum includes standard based readings as well as common core readings from the following genres: Tradition, Fiction, Poetry, Drama, Nonfiction, and Information and Visual Media. 

Prior to coming to St. Luke I substitute taught multiple grade levels in both short-term and long-term positions for Stockton Unified School District. In addition to substitute teaching, I taught sixth grade on a teaching internship for three years at Commodore Stockton Skills Magnet School.

I attended Humphrey’s college where I earned an A.A. degree in Liberal Studies and a B.S. degree in Community Affairs. I am currently working on the completion of a Multiple Subjects Teaching Credential from California State University Stanislaus. I anticipate the completion of this credential by 2018..

I have completed the RCIA program here at St. Luke Church and received my Certificate of Christian Formation. I am very proud to have accomplished what I believe is a calling long awaited.

I wholeheartedly believe that I was born to teach. I can recall at a very young age wanting to be a teacher. Many times over the years I have been asked, “Why did you become a teacher?” or “What do you like about teaching?” My answer is generally the same: “It is an awesome feeling to see the ‘light go on’ when a child learns!” If ever asked why I came to St. Luke, the answer is simple: God brought me here!
