Miss Rebecca

Miss Rebecca

Lead 100 Acre Wood Teacher

Miss Rebecca always aspired to be an infant teacher because she was born into a very large family. She always enjoyed helping out to take care of her younger cousins, especially the babies! When she was in high school she knew that becoming a daycare teacher was her calling. She went on to earn her Early Childhood Studies Certificate from SUNY Adirondack in 2012. Her favorite part of being an infant teacher for the youngest infants, is helping them grow physically and intellectually. When she sees them reach those tiny (but very important) milestones, it warms her heart knowing that she was a part of it. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, going to church, reading, hiking, listening to music and going to the gym.
