Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Rachel Decker

I am an Apex native and was born and raised here. I am the oldest of four girls in my family and I got married to my husband Alex two years ago. We adopted a dog named Lexi. I didn’t go very far for college and earned my elementary education degree with a concentration in mathematics at North Carolina State University (GO PACK!).

In my free time I enjoy reading, being outside and staying active. I have played volleyball since I was in middle school and I’ve been coaching for almost 3 years. I also enjoy being creative, cooking new recipes and drinking coffee.

This will be my fourth year teaching at Laurel Park. I have previously worked with children through privately tutoring, life guarding, and working at the YMCA. While studying at NC State, I was accepted into the Student Teaching Abroad experience in Brazil. I spent 4 amazing weeks in Brazil observing multiple elementary schools and enrolled in a Portuguese language class at a local university.
