Rebecca taught Spanish for six and a half years in Chesterfield County. She has taught at Westminster since 2005. In 1998, she was awarded Most Outstanding Secondary Education Student from JMU. In 1999 Rebecca was awarded Chesterfield County's New Teacher of the Year. She has studied abroad at the University of Salamanca, Spain (summer session), traveled to Spain six times (taking students three of those times), and traveled to Mexico and Puerto Rico.
When I was a swim instructor I realized that I can't make a child swim, but I can give him the tools and make it so much fun in the water that he wants to jump in and start swimming. I have the same teaching philosophy for teaching Spanish. The Lord continues to bless me here at Westminster, and I hope that by His grace, I can be a blessing to my students as well.
