Hello students and families!
My name is Rebecca Malat and I am proud to be the newest Eaton Eagle, joining the fifth grade team. Though I am new to Eaton, 2018-2019 marks my 20th year in the classroom. I had the pleasure the first ten years of my career teaching first grade in Irvine, California and have spent the last decade here in the Cupertino District at Murdock-Portal Elementary teaching kindergarten, first, fourth and fifth grades. While teaching is my greatest passion, I also enjoy the great outdoors and just recently completed with my husband, a builder, the construction of our home in the Santa Cruz mountains. We have two sons, Jacob and Elijah. Jacob is 22 years old and preparing to join the teaching profession and Elijah is 17, beginning his senior year at Lynbrook High School. Nestled in the redwoods, our family enjoys relaxing together cooking, reading, gardening, playing baseball with our two Labrador Retrievers, and watching our flock of hens forage our property!
Thank you Eaton for the warm welcome and please feel free to stop by Room 16 to introduce yourself, as I am excited to get to know my new school community.
