Upper School Art Teacher
Rebecca holds a B.A. from Oberlin College and a M.Ed. in arts education from Harvard University. Her work investigates new ways that performance, public art, and storytelling can be used to create meaningful, responsive, and transformative experiences for youth and communities. She previously taught at The Berkeley School and Montessori Family School, in El Cerrito. In 2018, Rebecca completed a Fulbright scholarship in Athens, Greece where she taught social justice and performance to middle school students, culminating in a large public sculpture and performance in Heraklion, Crete. Her theater and public artwork are highly collaborative and have been developed in communities across Greece, New York, Ohio, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Palo Alto. When she is not teaching art, she loves to garden, cook, and go on long hikes in Oakland, where she lives with her husband, dog Shmooli, and cat Judy. Rebecca joined the BPC faculty in 2021.
Why I Work with Children
I love seeing the world from the perspective of children. Their art brings me hope, joy, understanding, and courage.
A Favorite Book
Circe by Madeline Miller is a riveting retelling of the Greek myths from Circe’s point of view!
