Rebecca is from Portland, Tennessee which is known as the strawberry capital of Tennessee. It is a small town north of Nashville on the Kentucky line. She came to Chattanooga to study Early Childhood Education at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. She immediately fell in love with Chattanooga and can’t imagine living anywhere else.

This will be Rebecca’s second year of teaching at Brainerd Baptist. Except this year she will be teaching with a new name, since she was recently married this past June!

Rebecca enjoys all things crafty. Currently she is trying to learn to sew. She also enjoys chocolate, books, coffee, and running. Rebecca finished her first half marathon last year and is looking forward to running the Four Bridges half marathon this year.

Rebecca loves laughing and learning with her students. Her students work hard, but have so much fun learning in hands on ways, they do not even realize it is hard work.

She and her husband Bruce have been members at Brainerd Baptist Church since 2011. Rebecca serves in the children’s department at church.
