Rebecca was homeschooled all twelve years of her primary education and is a Westminster Academy graduate. After finishing university, her plans to work for the US government changed when God called her to the mission field. Over the next four years she served several terms as an ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher in the Middle East, working with Muslims who had never heard the gospel. Since returning to the States last year, she has continued to serve her mission agency as a mentor for new workers, but she’s never forgotten how much she enjoyed teaching. She is excited to return to Westminster, this time as a teacher, to instruct students in her absolute favorite subject: History.
I am thrilled to have the chance to serve at Westminster Academy as a teacher of history. It has been my favorite subject since middle school, when I had a phenomenal teacher instill a passion for the topic in me. It is my hope that I can be the same kind of inspiration for my own students. I believe that a firm grasp of history is not only indispensable for achieving a well-rounded education, but that it also clearly showcases the amazing providence of God in our lives. I look forward to exploring with students the exciting, crazy, mysterious and miraculous stories of our past.
