Hello students and parents. My name is Rebecca and I moved to the Hudson Valley area in the beginning of 2012. I have my teaching certifications in NY state in general and special education birth -grade 6 with a major in English. I just completed my Master's program through the University of Phoenix for Teacher Leadership in February 2013. I am also considering taking my Content Specialty Test in English to teach high school English.
I had the great opportunity to live in Japan for three years while my husband finished his service to our country as a Marine. This gave me opportunities to become culturally diverse and work with students from many backgrounds.
I am currently a substitute teacher in Highland Central School District as well as at West Point Elementary and Middle School's. I am seeking full time employment in a school district in the area, but as you know the market for teaching is tough right now.
I am committed to excellence and will offer you nothing but the best in helping you achieve your best as well. I hope to make learning as enjoyable as possible for you and look forward to meeting you. I truly love literature and teaching and will strive to be flexible and understanding in your (or your child's) needs. I use creative methods when the opportunities arise to hopefully make learning more enjoyable for you while pushing you to excel.
