Mrs. Rebecca Halverson To All Instructors

Rebecca grew up in Ecuador where her parents served as missionaries with the World Mission Prayer League. She finished high school at Hillcrest Academy in Fergus Falls, then went on to earn a degree in Social Studies Education from the University of Northwestern in St. Paul. After graduating from Northwestern, Rebecca worked in Forest Lake, MN for two years teaching in their Spanish immersion program. In 2014 Rebecca was invited to teach at Hebron School in South India, and gladly accepted the opportunity to serve the children of Christian workers across Asia. 

From the moment she arrived at Hebron School, Rebecca enthusiastically immersed herself in boarding school life. In addition to teaching Middle and High School History, Geography, and Earth Science, she directed several plays, served as dorm parent, and participated in a variety of school activities. After working in India for four years, Rebecca returned to Minnesota where she stepped back into teaching at Forest Lake Area Middle School, met and married Caleb Halverson, and settled into a cozy little blue house in North Minneapolis. 

Rebecca left full-time teaching in the public schools when her daughter Abigail was born in June 2021. She is loving her new role as a stay-at-home mom, however she does miss the energy of the classroom and is excited for the opportunity to re-enter the world of academics and work with students again at WEST. :
