Year 2 Teacher
Rebecca was born and raised in Newcastle, England. She studied at Northumbria University, where she gained a BA (Hons) in Early Primary Education. After completing her degree, she taught across Early Years and KS1 in a variety of schools where she gained experience teaching diverse of children, including those with Special Educational Needs (SEN), and children for whom English was an additional language (EAL).
After teaching in the UK for three years, she decided she wanted to incorporate her love of exploring new countries and cultures by teaching abroad. In 2016, she moved to Cyprus, where she taught in Lower Key Stage 2 for three years. During her time as a class teacher, she has also had the responsibility of being a coordinator of Science and Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE).
When she is not at school, Rebecca enjoys being outdoors, and exploring different parts of Denmark, especially along the coastline. She thoroughly enjoys living in Denmark and is currently attending classes to learn Danish, which she hopes will equip her to further integrate into life in Denmark. When Rebecca is not busy exploring or learning something new, she enjoys cooking, reading, and spending time with her friends and family.
