Rachel Palcic

My name is Rachel Palcic and I am the Elementary Partial Program teacher located at Deer Lakes High School.  I have taught at Deer Lakes since 2019. I am also a coach for the Deer Lakes Middle School Boys team!
I have previously worked at Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic and Pressley Ridge. I strongly believe in building relationships with students to help them succeed at school and in the community. 
I live in Pittsburgh, but I am originally from Shaler. I enjoy being outdoors, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.
