Rachel Samek

PreK - 4 Teacher


I was born and raised in Hurst, Texas, where I still live with my husband, Michael, whom I recently married in May 2022. I received my Bachelor of Science in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology from the University of North Texas in 2019. However, I soon realized my true passion was teaching, and I am currently pursuing an alternate certification in teaching for kindergarten through sixth grade. I have previous experience teaching middle and high school science at Fusion Academy in Southlake. I have also coached junior speech and debate at the home school speech and debate club I participated in throughout my high school years.

When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? My earliest recollection of what I wanted to be when I grew up was a ballerina.

Why do you choose to work at CCA? I chose to work at CCA because I wanted to work in a Christian atmosphere with like-minded individuals who have a passion for education.

What is one fun fact about you? One fun fact about me is that I have two colors in my left eye, which is known as heterochromia.

What is your favorite book of all time? The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy - It was one of my favorite books growing up. It is suspenseful, enticing, and well-written.

What is one thing that can instantly make your day better? Something that can instantly make my day better would be a hug from someone I love or an iced coffee!

What do you like to do for fun? I like spending time with friends and family, traveling, camping, playing board games, reading, doing an art project, playing music, and cooking!
