Rebecca Steeves, MS Science
Originally from New Hampshire, I love living in the White Mountains! I discovered that I wanted to be a science teacher by traveling around the country working as a park ranger for the National Park Service and U.S. Forest Service. For almost 10 years, I taught students of all ages about alligators and crocodiles in the Everglades of Florida, wolves and geysers in Yellowstone, cacti and gila monsters in Arizona, and geology and wildflowers in California. Along the way, I also lived in Nevada and Virginia.
My Education and Professional Background:
I have a Bachelor's of Science in Wildlife Biology from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and a Master's of Education from Lesley University in Cambridge, MA. Before coming to Lin-Wood, I started a small middle school on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas and stayed for 5 years. It was a wonderful experience scuba diving, exploring marine life, and learning about the Bahamian culture! I've loved teaching at Lin-Wood since 2007 and look forward to getting to know more students each year!
