Please join me in welcoming Caran Fahy to our Lincoln staff as our new art teacher.


Caran has enjoyed teaching elementary art for the past 28 years.  She received her BA in Education from the University of North Texas with a credential in elementary education and elementary art education, with post graduate work in classroom management as well.  Mrs. Fahy taught elementary art for the Richardson Independent School District in Texas for 8 years before relocating to Southern California in 1994.  

Caran has held various profession and volunteer positions ranging from Art Lecturer/Teacher for Art Masters, Inc. to VP of the Visual Arts at her local elementary school.  She has developed and initiated a variety of art related programs through the years.  Currently, she serves as a Partner on the Arts Commission for Newport-Mesa Alliance for the Arts, keeping the arts alive in our local schools. Caran is a professional person of high purpose, contagious enthusiasm, and excellence. Over the years, her enthusiasm and focus has made her a popular instructor with her students, parents, and colleagues.

At home, Caran is married and mother to twin 10 yr. old boys. In addition to creating her own artwork, she enjoys staying fit with Zumba, developing computer skills and exploring new art techniques and media. Caran is thrilled to be joining the staff at Lincoln Elementary and looks forward to an inspiring and creative year.

GATE testing information

GATE Testing

October is the month to begin the process for GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) testing for 3rd – 6th grade students. Teachers are looking at the students’ behaviors and working to determine if they are able to see evidence of gifted characteristics with any of the students in their classroom. For a list of these GATE characteristics, please go the http://web.nmusd.us and then click on departments and scroll to GATE.

 ALL 3rd graders are eligible for GATE testing if the parents give permission.  For a 4th – 6th grader to qualify for testing, the student must first be recommended by their teacher or their parent. See your child’s teacher about requesting testing.  Keep in mind however, that to proceed with testing, the student must meet the following guidelines:

  • If tested prior to this year in NMUSD, they must have a score that is at least in the 80%     
  • A student cannot take the test a 3rd time
  • If tested, the student will take the same test as prior year

The hard struggle is to be welcomed, never feared...the only thing to fear is your own unwillingness to make the full one-hundred percent effort.
