My name is Rebecca Metcalf and this is my 14th year teaching ELA at the high school level. I have taught ELA I, ELA I Pre-AP, ELA II, ELA II AAC (and Pre-AP), ELA III, ELA III AP, ELA IV, and ELA IV AP - but this year I am teaching only ELA I AAC (which is super exciting for so many reasons!).
I was born at the foot of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, so there is a special place in my heart and life for the outdoors. I love camping, exploring, traveling, fishing, and sleeping in a hammock under the stars.
Authors whose work I really enjoy are Neal Shusterman, Stephen King, and Jeffrey Deaver.
I attended 5 different colleges/universities to earn all my degrees, and I can honestly say that I am done earning more. Now, I try to focus on real-world learning experiences rather than those based in a classroom.
I married my soulmate in March 2021. Together, we have a blended family of six. Two of my children are 6th graders at Bowie Middle School and the other two are freshmen at Travis, so I am sure I will actually live at school this year.
At home, I get to cuddle 2 Great Danes and 1 elderly Jack Russell. Things I do not cuddle at home include our chickens (although they would not mind or notice a good cuddle) and a ferret AKA "fur snake" (ewww).
My favorite quote embodies the zen quality of life I try to live by - "If you don't mind, it doesn't matter." - Mark Twain
