Faculty & Staff Directory
Rebecca was born in Illinois and grew up in the Midwest. She went to Creighton University for her undergraduate studies in English, but wanted to take so many classes in different departments that she ended up with minors in Spanish and Hispanic studies and women and gender studies. Creighton also presented her with her first introduction to service learning communities and was a wonderful place to learn about other cultures.
As a firm believer in being a lifelong learner, Rebecca continued her education in Maryland at both Notre Dame of Maryland and Loyola University, Maryland, while exploring a new part of the country. Rebecca loves to travel. Some of the highlights so far have been Arizona, Washington DC, New York, South Carolina, Spain, the Dominican Republic, Italy, and France. Feel free to ask about travel or share a new suggestion to visit!
Rebecca believes strongly in the power of single sex education and in the ability of education to shape an individual's life. She is looking forward to continuing her work in an all girl's school environment. Rebecca is thrilled to not only get the opportunity to teach English at Oldfields, but also share her love of community service and writing with the students beyond the classroom.
In her spare time, Rebecca enjoys photographing beautiful or interesting places, baking something new, seeing new plays or musicals, and getting lost in the world of a book.
