After graduating a year early from UCSB in 2003, Rebecca came back to Los Angeles to earn her teaching credential and master’s degree at UCLA’s Graduate School of Education. She then spent two years teaching middle school English in South Los Angeles until she got a call one day from her former teacher, Ms. Melanie Miller. Melanie informed her of an opening at Cleveland, and after a scary interview process involving Mr. Linn watching her teach a lesson, she got the job!
In 2011, Rebecca returned to graduate school to purse her doctorate at USC, which she finished in 2014. Now, in addition to coordinating the 12th grade and teaching on the 11th grade team, Rebecca also teaches as an adjunct professor at night for USC’s Rossier School of Education. For Rebecca, Cleveland is home, and she is excited to continue the growth and success of the Magnet Program
