Mrs. Rebekah Jansen
Welcome Southridge Rockets!
My name is Rebekah Jansen. This will be my 6th year teaching Special Education at Southridge Elementary and I am so grateful to be a part of such a great school with wonderful students, families, and teachers. I graduated in December of 2012 with my Bachelor's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from Texas Woman's University. I am certified in Special Education, Early Childhood - 8th grade, and English as a Second Language. Teaching children with special needs is my passion.
I am one of eight kids and love being from a big family. My youngest brother, Jake, has Down syndrome and he has influenced my love and passion for children with special needs.
My husband Chris and I have a cute, smiley French bulldog named Buddy.
I enjoy helping each of my students learn and grow. I have high expectations for them. I believe in building their self-confidence and fostering their independence. We learn through hands on and relevant experiences that help them become problem solvers. Our classroom is like a second home and we are a family who loves, encourages, and cheers each other on!
I look forward to having a great school year with your children and working together to help them grow and learn.
