About Mrs. Wallace

Biography

IMG 0525.jpg

My name is Rebecca Wallace.  I was born in Mobile, Alabama and moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1986.  After high school and college I moved to Albuquerque in 2002.  My wonderful husband Matthew and I were married in 2006, and Ember, our Dalmatian, joined our family in 2008.  Because we needed one more Dalmatian, Cinder joined our family in 2013.

  

I graduated from Santa Fe High School in 1997.  I received my Bachelor’s in English with a minor in Creative Writing from New Mexico State University in 2002.  While teaching and going to school I earned my Secondary Licensure from New Mexico Highlands University in 2007.  In May of 2011 I graduated with my Master’s in Curriculum & Instruction with an emphasis in Reading from New Mexico Highlands University.

 

My professional career includes educational and non-educational jobs.  Before I entered the education field, I was as an administrative assistant for a private school and an assistant manager for a movie theater.  I have twelve years of teaching experience, and I still love my job!  At a private school, I was the English department teaching English 9 – 12 and Journalism 2004 through 2006.  In 2006 I joined Cibola High School (Albuquerque Public Schools) where I teach English 10 Honors, English 10, and English 12.  I incorporate pre-AP skills in all my English classes to encourage critical thinking skills.

 

My professional interests center around motivating adolescents.  I believe it is important to capture their attentions early on in the class.  One way I do that is by incorporating young adult literature in my classroom.  I foster a reading and writing culture in my classroom by being an adult model for them.  I also provide opportunities for students to practice cooperative learning, critical thinking, and student responsibility.  My goal is to help them be successful in the classroom and beyond.
