About The Early Childhood Director...
This is Rebecca's first year as the Early Childhood Director. She taught 4 year old preschool at Anchor, though it is her 4th year working with the school. Rebecca is originally from Wisconsin but her husband is a 22 year soldier, and she was also in the military for a short time as well- so she has lived in nearly every part of America. She is a graduate from Troy University of Alabama. She loves working with 4 year olds and loves the joy they get from learning. She believes in putting great focus on the social and emotional dynamics of learning and puts great emphasis on autonomy, independence, respect for others and respect for self. She loves to see the change in their critical thinking and communication skills- especially in regards to their emotional intelligence; she enjoys seeing them go from a "preschooler" to a school age student. Away from work, Rebecca enjoys spending time with her husband Shane and her two sons: Shane Jr. (18) and Samual (16) and her two Boston Terriers: Opie and Ragnar. She loves fitness and spends a lot of time at the gym. She also loves fishing and hiking and all things Alaska .
