Hello! I am Rebecca Letter, a North High Social Studies teacher.
I have been at North for over a decade now! I have taught many subjects in the Social Studies department over the years, but I currently teach U.S. History and Psychology.
I am an alumnus of Lawrence University in Appleton, WI where I earned my B.A. in Psychology. I earned my Masters degree in education from UW-La Crosse in 2007, and became a National Board Certified Teacher in 2009.
I believe it is my job to not only present students with new knowledge, but to develop them as a whole person. Students need to be prepared for the world outside their school walls by being able to communicate effectively and be actively involved in their communities.
My goal as a social studies teacher is to encourage students to recognize the cultural differences around them, and build connections to those differences that will make it possible for them to understand and appreciate the similarities in diversity.
I am looking forward to another year here at North High, and I am excited to get to know you!
