Hello! My name is Rebecca VanLemmeren, and I am so happy to be a kindergarten teacher at Light Farms Elementary. I have taught kindergarten for four years, and also taught in the upper grade for one year. I was thrilled to join the Light Farms Staff last year as a kindergarten teacher. Each year has been a wonderful experience getting to know the children, becoming a team in the classroom, as well as helping student's shine as unique individuals.
I married my amazing husband, Zach in May 2018. I moved to this flourishing area of North Texas last year from my home in California. We rescued a husky puppy who is a sweet and spunky addition to our family! We are both so excited to be living here together on our new adventure!
When I was little, I always knew I wanted to be a teacher. I loved being involved in my mom’s kindergarten classroom and learning from the best! I had a wonderful education at San Diego State University graduating Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts and a specialization in Theater. My mom and dad continue to be involved in my teaching career (even long distance)! I was fortunate to have my parents and Zach working hard this summer to help build and create things in my classroom for my incoming kinders!
I enjoy shopping and decorating my home. I enjoy staying active, playing sports (basketball and tennis), and dancing whenever I can! Most of all, I enjoy teaching! I am always looking for new ideas and learning more strategies to help my students SHINE!
I can’t wait to smile, laugh, sing, dance, and learn with your child!
