Rebecca DePalma is in the Master Teacher Fellows program at Wake Forest University. She is working on her Masters in Education to become a middle or high school English teacher. Her passion for teaching comes from her belief that teenagers are remarkable people who need someone to listen to them, care about them and trust them so they can do amazing things. Outside of her work, Rebecca loves spending time with her family, playing music, reading, hiking, playing sports/dancing, cooking and going out to trivia with friends. Originally from Syracuse, NY, Rebecca graduated from University of Toronto, and then spent 12 years in Northern California, primarily as a youth director, before moving to Winston-Salem, NC. Please contact her if you have any ideas, comments, questions or concerns.
