I am originally from a small town called Vacherie in Louisiana. I received my bachelor’s degree in education from the University of New Orleans and after teaching high school math for 4 years, returned to UNO for a Master’s Degree in Mathematics. I then began my PhD work at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville and finally completed that in 1989. I have taught an online elementary statistics course for St. Leo University (Florida) for several years. I am currently employed as an instructor in the mathematics department at Normandale Community College in Bloomington, Minnesota, where I teach a variety of intro level mathematics course from developmental to college algebra.
My name is Rebecca Oberg and I'm an English teacher (9th grade and Journalism) in Minneapolis specializing in the use of 21st century learning in the modern English/Language Arts classroom. Before teaching I attended the University of Minnesota, where I graduated Summa cum Laude with a BA in English Literature and Composition with minors in Geography and European Studies. I continued at the U of M, where I received my Masters of Education and licensure to teach English Communication Arts and Literature for grades 5-12. I have worked in urban and suburban schools, as well as with various other programs including Upward Bound. When I'm not teaching, I enjoy playing with my cocker spaniel dog Maggie as well as traveling, reading, learning Greek, and being an aunt to my two adorable nephews!
