Mrs. Rebecca Barnes

Hello all! I am Rebecca Barnes and I am teaching Seventh Grade Language Arts! I am so excited to be at Hillcrest Middle School for my seventh year of teaching! I am confident that this year is going to be so much fun! 

Here is a little information about me!

I grew up in Phoenix, Arizona and have always attended Deer Valley Unified School District. I went to Paseo Hills, Stetson Hills, and Sandra Day O'Connor. Growing up I always participated in sports. I danced for two years, swam for four years, and played softball for ten years. Throughout seventh and eighth grade I also participated in volleyball and basketball. I graduated from Northern Arizona University with a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education. I have always known I wanted to be a teacher so there was no hesitation when deciding my major. I have four dogs, Baylee, Bear, Chewy, and Zeus. They are definitely my children. All of my students will hear stories about them throughout the year! I am married to a wonderful man, Mr. Barnes. 

I cannot wait for all of our school events and activities this year and to get to know all of my students. Never hesitate to ask me any questions! My email is
