Hello. My name is Rebecca Green. I have been teaching since August 1995 and I have been teaching at Copper Creek Elementary since August 1999. I have taught special education (1st - 6th grade), kindergarten, first grade, and second grade in the Deer Valley Unified School District. I have also taught in the Paradise Valley School District (first, second, and third grade). I have also taken several classes on teaching gifted students. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary and Special Education from Northern Arizona University in 1994 and hold endorsements in Early Childhood Education and Structured English Immersion.
I am originally from Lakewood, Colorado. My family still lives there so I try and go there to cool off every summer. I moved out to Arizona to marry my husband, Brian. We have two delightful sons named David (born in 2003) and Christopher (born in 2008). If I am not working on things for school I am enjoying time being a wife and mother!
My philosophy is that all kids want to learn and it is my job is to teach my students to love learning and want to be lifelong learners. My goal is that every student who comes through my classroom feels good about themselves and reaches their fullest potential.
I love teaching kindergarten here at Copper Creek because of my wonderful teammates as we plan to make lessons focused on our young learners needs. I strive for excitement of learning with fun and hands-on activities to meet the Kindergarten state standards.
