Rebecca came all the way from Nashville when we opened the Moraga Campus! She was lucky enough to spend the majority of her childhood education in Montessori—from age two to middle school—and it nurtured her curiosity and encouraged her to find her own unique interests. Rebecca was a creative writing major at Interlochen Arts Academy. Rebecca spent a year volunteering at the Association for des Quartiers IDMAJ in Morocco where she taught English as a second language to children in the slums of Casablanca. Rebecca then returned to work at Abintra Montessori school in Nashville as an assistant guide in the primary classroom and a helper to children with special needs. Rebecca worked at One Tree Tutorial Enrichment, a unique program that blended a homeschool experience with in-person Montessori education. In addition to lessons in the sensorial and practical life areas, Rebecca presented art instruction to both primary and elementary students. Rebecca believes strongly that everyone is an artist, and loves to combine her interests in cultural studies with her passion for art.
