Ms. Rebecca Maritt
English Language Arts
I’m beyond excited to loop up with the classes of 2022 and 2024 this year! My own kids have been proud Lions since the inaugural year and we cherish the freedoms and creativity pursued by the quality team committed here. I believe our students need to feel respected for their unique perspective and motivated to make contributions. My focus is to help each child pursue his or her best work through new academic challenges and show them their immeasurable value in this community.
I studied abroad in a university bilingual program and graduated from North Texas (before the new millennium). I had a varied career for about 15 years as a radio and television journalist in DFW but continued to invest in kids through weekly programs. I also spent two years implementing a non-profit elementary program with a dynamic, creative curriculum emphasis. I was an academic coach for two years here at LPS and believe that the leadership culture and family atmosphere are worth our investment. I've taught English and Leadership during my last 3 years here.
I love Texas and married my high school best friend (Captain America). We have three, crazy different kids and live in a house on a dirt road. (That’s why my little car is always filthy!) My family loves to camp, play games and host families at Maritt Park. I am constantly plotting how I can get to a white sandy beach. Invitations? Anyone?
I am energized to be part of a team challenging kids to grow as a whole person, not just academically. I very much value the intergenerational and culturally diverse community at LPS where mentoring is a duplicated legacy.
