After completing a Music BA (Honours) degree at the University of Leeds, Rebecca spent some time travelling. Having experienced working with young children, a visit to a local primary school in Fiji confirmed her decision to become a primary school teacher. Although her experience working with young children ranged from running music clubs to camp counselling at an American summer camp, she wanted to gain skills in a primary school setting. Before studying for a PGCE in the UK Rebecca spent a year working with ESL students, supporting their development and understanding of the English language. In 2010 she took up her first teaching post as Year 4 Class Teacher in Northamptonshire, UK and then moved to Year 2 in 2013. During this time she gained invaluable experience of teaching a Creative Curriculum and held the responsibility of Music Coordinator.
Rebecca's decision to teach at Dover Court came when she was looking to further develop her teaching career in an international school. She has always held an interest in ensuring that provision is made for all students, and the unique model of supportive education and ESL classes at Dover Court appealed to her interest in learning more about inclusion. Having visited Singapore previously, Rebecca saw Dover Court as an exciting opportunity to work and live in a vibrant and culturally rich city.
Music is a big interest. From a young age Rebecca started playing the cello and saxophone, and most recently she has been teaching herself to play the ukulele. As well as playing music, she enjoys listening to live bands and going to the theatre. In her spare time, she likes to go running and is hoping to take part in one of Singapore's many charity runs. She loves to travel and experiencing different cultures, so she is very excited about the opportunity to visit some amazing countries that are now on her doorstep!
