MISS MADELINE BAZELAK – KINDERGARTEN
Miss Bazelak is so excited to join the Rhema family as the Kindergarten teacher. Miss Bazelak is a graduate of Duquesne University where she earned her BA in elementary education and was a member of the volleyball team. Originally from Dayton, Ohio, Miss Bazelak felt that God called her to stay and teach in Pittsburgh. She has experience working with Kindergarten, 1st grade and 3rd grade over the last few years. Miss Bazelak feels as though teaching happens best when she can turn to faith and prayer to help guide her and her students. Her favorite classroom activities are ones that involve students interacting with their teacher and classmates and being active! When not at school, Miss Bazelak enjoys playing and coaching sports, especially basketball and volleyball, baking and playing outdoors with her dog. Miss Bazelak is so excited to help students grow and learn in a classroom that is full of Christ and love.
Raising up Godly leaders for the next generation starts at a young age and Rachel is honored to have the opportunity to teach kindergarten students not only how to read, write, and count, but also how to serve each other with love and to trust and honor the Lord with their life.
In addition to teaching kindergarten, Rachel continues to serve as a member of the Pennsylvania Air National Guard, a Reserve component of the Air Force since 2010. She is passionate about serving our country and was raised in a military family. Her father was her recruiter and served for 27 years in the Air Force. Her brother also serves in the Air Force as a fire fighter. Rachel lives in Carnegie and also enjoys spending time with her family, being an aunt, gardening, serving in church, baking, and traveling to the beach.
“But I do not consider my life as something of value of dear to me, so that I may with joy finish my course and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus to testify faithfully of the good news of God’s precious, undeserved grace which makes us free of the guilt of sin and grants us eternal life.” –Acts 20:24, AMP
