Mrs. Rebecca Bales

Hello, and welcome to my teacher website!

My name is Rebecca (Becky) Bales and I excited to be part of the staff at both Cottonwood Creek Elementary and Howard Norman Elementary.  I am THRILLED to be your Gifted and Talented teacher this year.  It's going to be fantastic year of learning and collaboration!  This will be a project-based program this year, which is going to be so fun (more details coming later).  I look forward to getting to know my students, but here's a little about me first.

I am originally from Kansas but moved to Central Texas in 2006.  I am married and have two children that attended Howard Norman Elementary.  my family loves to travel and spend time outdoors exploring!  We also have a dachshund, Clark, and a Leopard Gecko, Leroy.

I received my degree in Elementary Education and English for Speakers of Other Languages from Pittsburg State University in Pittsburg, Kansas.  I have been an elementary teacher for thirteen years with most of those years in 4th and 5th grade math. Joining Hippo Nation has been a blessing to my family and we are thankful for this inviting, proud, and small, yet rapidly growing, community.  I am excited to begin another great year here at Hippo Nation!
