Teacher Message: Greetings!  My name is Rebecca Woods, and I teach 8th Grade Math here at Gateway MST Middle.   I look forward to serving the children and families of the Gateway community.  I pledge to leverage my my creativity, knowledge and experience to create a solutions-driven, student-focused classroom experience for your child.
Biography: Born in Denver, Colorado, I grew up in Missouri, and went to Kickapoo High School in Springfield, Missouri.  Earned my Bachelors degree at the University of Missouri, Columbia, and went back to MU to earn a Masters Degree in Library Science, with a focus on School and Public Libraries.   
After beginning my career as a Children's Librarian in Pueblo Colorado, I found myself needing to come back to Missouri to help take care of my parents. I worked as a Librarian and Adjunct Faculty at a trade school, but I had simultaneously been tutoring mathematics since 2008.  I loved tutoring math so much, eventually I decided I wanted to refocus my career.   I began transitioning to being a classroom teacher by going back to school (again) for additional mathematics credits, and substitute teaching in the Saint Louis area for four years.  
This is now my third year at Gateway MST Middle School.  I look forward to working with you.  I personally pledge to do my best every day for you and your family.
