Hello! My name is Rebekah Whittaker. I am so excited to be teaching 4th grade here at Walterville Elementary School! I hope this website will be an informative resource and a place for us to connect about what is happening in the classroom.
A little about myself. I grew up down the road, in Eugene, and attended the University of Oregon for both my Bachelor’s Degree and Master’s Degree (in Curriculum and Teaching). Go Ducks! I finished my BA in 2002, and went on to have a career working with the Child Care Providers who do care through the Oregon DHS Employment Related Daycare Program. My husband and I lived in Portland for about 8 years, and we have two kids – Jackson (6 years old) and Hope (3 years old).
We love being back in this area and raising our children in the Willamette Valley. We enjoy hiking at Spencer Butte, going to the movies, getting ice cream, and spending time with family and friends.
Please feel free to contact me – one of my top priorities this year is to learn more about the Walterville community and I cannot wait to meet all of you! Thank you for allowing me to teach your children everyday!
