Rosalie Lake: General studies
principal.

ies as responsive to the half-day
as possible," Ms. Lake said.
"I feel absolutely comfortable
in my position as general stud-
ies principal. If I didn't, it
wouldn't be so easy to look for-
ward to that which I'm not fa-
miliar with. It gives me the
emotional energy."
At the close of the 1992-93
school year, Akiva consolidated
the positions of upper- and low-
er-school secular studies princi-
pals into one role.
Akiva, like other area Jewish
day schools, divides its hours be-
tween secular and Judaic stud-
ies.
Ms. Lake admits some areas
of education, like arts and ath-
letics, must be fostered outside
of the school due to lack of time.
She believes day schools are
successful because "the students
and families are committed to ed-
ucation. The children are asked
to be the best students in half the
time."
In addition, she views Akiva
students, as a rule, "more fo-
cused" than their public-school
peers.
"Most of them know upon
graduation they'll go to Israel.
It's part of their plan. And most
leave knowing which college
they'll attend upon their return."
Ms. Lake plans to spend the
summer meeting with teachers,
determining their hopes and
needs to build a cohesive ap-
proach to social and academic is-
sues. Independent schools, Ms.
Lake said, allow for the oppor-
tunity to research and quickly
implement problem-solving de-
cisions.
Her long-term plans include
learning Hebrew and reentering
the classroom part time. "At the
Valley School I taught an hour
of fifth-grade math. It was my fa-
vorite part of the day," Ms. Lake
said.
Ms. Lake pursued her career
after spending time volunteer-
ing . "I was the mom who was al-
ways at my children's school. I
enjoyed it so much I went back
to get my degree in education.
"Both her bachelor's and mas-
ter's degrees are from Oakland
University in Rochester.
