Miss Rebekah Embry

Hey there! I graduated from Valparaiso University with a degree in Elementary Education. Throughout my career I've taught 1st and 3rd grade in Portage, Valparaiso, and now Duneland. This is my 6th year of teaching and I'm excited to be in the best grade ever.... first grade! I truly love working with all my students to help them grow, discover their unique talents, and engage in a deeper love of learning! I crave adventure! I've been parasailing, zip lining in two countries, white water rafting, and skydiving! I love drinking coffee, reading books, creating art, and making my classroom and teaching as special as can be!

I graduated from Purdue North Central in 2014 with a degree in Early Childhood Education. I began my teaching career at Wanatah Elementary, teaching Kindergarten for 5 years before coming to Liberty Elementary to teach First Grade. This will be my 5th year here at Liberty in First grade! I grew up in the Duneland community and have loved being back as an educator! I enjoy spending time with my husband Jake and son Weston. I have two rescue dogs, Max and Bentley. Outside of school I enjoy spending time at my pool, riding my bike, and going for hikes.

I have taught for 17 years in both Porter Township and Duneland School corporations. I did my undergrad studies at Indiana University Bloomington and received my Master's Degree in Educational Psychology from Ball State. I have taught 2nd grade for the past 8 years. This will be my first year teaching First Grade! I am very excited for this new adventure. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family. We love to go on vacations… especially to Disney. I also enjoy taking walks and exercising. When I get the time, I enjoy reading and watching movies. My favorite movies are the Marvel movies.
