Hello! My name is Rebecca Brinegar. My husband Max and I are recent Austin transplants from Houston. We are the proud parents of Boone, a chocolate lab, whom we adore. In my spare time I enjoy reading, cooking, hiking with Boone and Max, or spending time with family and friends.
I was born and grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma where I attended Jenks Public Schools K-12 and began my undergraduate work at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, where Max and I met. His job in software brought us to Houston, Texas, where I completed my coursework at the University of Houston and graduated this past May with a Bachelor’s degree in Teaching and Learning. I am certified in EC-6. This past year I had the opportunity to student teach in a Kindergarten classroom and fell in love with all things Kinder. I have really enjoyed my summer getting to know the Austin area and all the fun adventures Austin has to offer!
Throughout my educational experience at Jenks Public Schools, Oklahoma State University, and the University of Houston, I have experienced remarkable teachers who brought innovative ideas to the classroom with passion and excitement each day. Similarly, I want my classroom to be a consistent, safe environment for students to come every day where they not only learn, but grow in their love of learning. I hope to bring joy and happiness everyday into my classroom to allow my students a feeling of excitement and safety.
I am very excited for this school year and look forward to meeting all the awesome ADS families!
