Rebecca Petersen


Grade 4 Teacher




Rebecca hails from the USA. She has a Bachelor's Degree in Business Finance, a Teaching Certificate and a Master's Degree in Education with a research emphasis. She also earned a TEFL 5 Diploma to position herself to help young English language learners better. She has been teaching in Singapore for four-and-a-half years.

Rebecca loves children and firmly believes that every child deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential. She has worked with children who were removed from traditional education systems because they were failing academically and socially, only to have them reintegrate as excellent academic students with strong social skills.

When asked what inspired her to become a teacher, Rebecca says there are few things she likes more than learning, growing and developing in new ways and seeing others do the same. Rebecca looks forward to spending each day in a classroom full of curious, energetic and happy students at OWIS.

Rebecca believes that kindness is best taught by example. She has five children, one of whom is in her last year of the IB DP. In her free time, Rebecca enjoys learning new things, engaging in outdoor activities and playing the piano.
