• Meet the Teacher

      Hello, wonderful families!

      I am Rebecca Schaming, and I am overjoyed to be your child's teacher this school year. Let me share a little bit about myself.

      PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND:

      Bachelors of Arts and Sciences from the University of Akron. Majoring in Business and Organizational Communication, Specialization in Public Relations and Minor in Professional Selling. Pursuing certification in Pre-K-4th grade General Education and Pre-K-8th grade Special Education. One-year of experience as the Assistant Director of the Sycamore Youth Center.

      CLASSROOM ENVIRONMENT:

      Our classroom is not just a place for learning; it's a family. Our classroom is a blend of social, emotional, and instructional learning. We grow and learn how to communicate effectively with one another. Growing in values such as kindness, honesty, generosity, and forgiveness. I believe growing in these areas not only helps in successful learning but the development of successful human beings, which makes this world a better place.

      EXPECTATIONS:

      I have high expectations for our students, but I also believe in providing the necessary support to help them meet those expectations. Together, as a team, we can help your child achieve their goals and build a foundation for a lifetime of learning.

      I am genuinely excited about the upcoming school year and the opportunity to get to know each student individually. Let's work together to make this a fantastic and memorable academic journey for your child.
