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!
I teach at Normandale Community College in Bloomington, MN. I am a former middle school teacher in the St Paul Public Schools. B.A. in Mathematics, Boston University, 1992 M.A. in Education, University of Michigan, 1994 Ph.D. in Mathematics Education, Michigan State University, 2005
I am just an average Midwestern guy spreading some knowledge about the human body. I received my B.A. from the University of Wisconsin Superior and my M.A. from the College of St Scholastica. Right now. The classes I teach are: anatomy & physiology, pathophysiology, medical terminology, medical law & ethics, kinesiology. I started making these videos as supplements to the classroom a few months ago and have many more to make. In my spare time I play table tennis for the St Adalberts Table Tennis Club (SATTC) and also for the Duluth Table Tennis Club (DTTC). I also like to run, bike, swim, cook and read Stephen King novels when I get a chance.
