My name is Rebecca Calvin, and I am so excited to be teaching first grade at Paine Elementary!!! I have been a husky my whole life, and I love this community! Just to give you a little background about me, I grew up in Trussville and graduated from Hewitt-Trussville High School in 2001. I was also a highstepper and played the flute in the band-go huskies!!!
I graduated from UAB with a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education in 2008. I then completed my master's degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education in 2010. I have taught Kindergarten for three years, and this will be my second year teacing first grade! I previously taught one year at Victory Christian School, and three years at Margaret Elementary School. I also recently obtained my ESOL teaching certificate.
My husband is Joey and we have 5 amazing children! they are Taylor (14), Haley (12), Brantley (8), Noah (4), and Emma (2). We attend NorthPark Baptist Church, where we love to serve in our student ministry and various mission opportunities. We love our church! Our family enjoys spending time together doing outdoor activities like hiking and riding bikes. We also have a family restaurant and food truck business called Southland BBQ. We love participating in community events, so you might see us around sometime with the food truck!
My hobbies include running, dancing and completing jigsaw puzzles! :)
