I am a proud alum of Arizona
State University where I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in elementary
education. I am a native of Arizona, raised in Superior, a small mining
town 30 minutes east of Copper Basin. I am the youngest of four kids and
have 11 nieces and nephews. Away from the classroom I enjoy spending time
with my family and friends, camping in the White Mountains, and supporting
“America’s Team,” the Dallas Cowboys. In my classroom, I believe that
every student can learn. I feel that my students make up the bright
future and I hope to encourage their want and need for learning.
My name is Rebecca Morgan. My
husband and I have been living in Arizona for the last 11 years. We
have two boy’s ages, 6 and 9 they are full of adventure and they keep me on my
toes all the time. I have worked in the Florence Unified School District
for the last 9 years. I began as a para-pro and worked while I then
finished my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education at University of Phoenix.
I have taught second grade for three years and third grade for three
years. I am currently teaching third grade science and social
studies. I enjoy being able to teach students and see the light bulb go
I was born in Miami, AZ and grew up in Superior and Kearny, AZ.
I went to high school in Tempe and graduated as a Tempe Bufffalo from
Tempe High School. I attended ASU for my undergraduate degree in
Elementary Education. My first husband had a lot of health issues, but we
raised a beautiful daughter who is also now an educator in Florence Schools
District! After 26 years of marriage he passed away in 2013 through many
years of health struggles. I learned a lot about perseverance from him
and want to instill that spirit in my students along with the academic content
they will need. I have since remarried and learning a lot still about
life. I am a lifelong learner and received my Master's from University of
Phoenix while teaching in Las Vegas, NV. I am currently pursuing my
doctorate in School Psychology from Capella University. I have taught 3rd
grade, 5th grade, 6th grade, 9th grade, spent 7 years as a high school
counselor at CHS, and now have returned to the classroom I love in 3rd grade Math.
I love learning and find out everyday I still have a lot to learn!
I look forward to instilling a love and desire for lifelong learning
in my students as well.
