Becky Rak was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, IL. She studied at Carthage College in Kenosha, Wisconsin and graduated with degrees in Elementary Education and Special Education.
Becky married John Rak in 2004. They have lived in Illinois, Wisconsin and currently have called Batesville home for the last 3 years. God blessed them with two beautiful children, Lilliana 6 years old and Lincoln 3 years old.
Currently Becky has learned to embrace her job as a stay at home mom. She cherishes this time she has been given to spend with her children, but looks forward to a season in life in which she will return to the classroom. Becky is fiercely passionate about teaching special needs children. She also feels it is important to education the “others” (non-identified special needs people) in our society about how to understand, accept, and treat people who have special needs, handicaps, disabilities, differences, etc.
We hope that you’ll join us on December 4th as we discuss ways to embrace differences with our children. Becky will be discussing ways to begin and guide the conversation of understanding and accepting people with special needs with our children. Becky will also be sharing examples of literature and movies that can be helpful in discussing these differences with our children.
