Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Rebecca Combs
This is the beginning of my 19th year at Highland Elementary. I have two grown sons and two grandsons. My husband and I own a small hobby farm where we raise donkeys, goats, chickens, cats and dogs. We also keep bees and grow a large garden. I have a Bachelors of History degree from Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon, a Masters in Linguistically Diverse Education from the University of New Mexico and a Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from Warren Wilson College.
In my position I am lucky to work with students in all grades and at all levels of language development. I enjoy the challenge of helping students develop their oral and literacy skills in English so they can confidently access the academic language of school. It is also very important to me that our second language learners and their families feel valued, respected and welcome in our Highland community.
