Rebecca is new to the Bay Area having recently moved from Nashville, Tennessee. 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.
Following high school as 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. Since 2016, Rebecca has worked at One Tree Tutorial Enrichment, a unique program that blended a homeschool experience Monday’s and Friday’s within-person Montessori education Tuesday through Thursday. 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. Rebecca is looking forward to meeting your children and is thrilled to be part of the Growing Light Montessori School Team.
