Rebecca Maas is a New Assistant Teacher in Grade Four
Rebecca just recently received her MEd from Hunter College. While attending school she gained experience by assisting and student teaching for the New York City Department of Education, most recently working as an assistant teacher at PS 77 Lower Lab School. She has also taught theatre and music to middle school students at JHS 166 Roberto Clemente School and with the Children’s Aid Society’s Summer Quest program.
Rebecca spends her weekends as the lead singer of an 80’s tribute band, performing in venues throughout Manhattan and along the East Coast. She is passionate about volunteering, having worked with the Sea Turtle Conservancy in Costa Rica, Habitat for Humanity in Kentucky, and Camp Hope, for children grieving the loss of a family member. Also an avid traveler, Rebecca backpacked through Thailand and New Zealand, and spent a year and a half working as a nanny and tutor in Australia. It was the time she spent with children abroad that led her to choose a career in education.
