Ms. Rebecca Gwynne, MAT

Welcome! My name is REBECCA GWYNNE and I'm looking forward to another school year at PSJ! I am excited about teaching ELA, a subject I am passionate about, to 8th graders-- my favorite grade level!  This school year will be my ninth year of teaching and my fourth year at P.S. Jones Middle School.

I graduated in 2007 from North Carolina State University with Bachelor degrees in Media Communication and Political Science. After volunteering in my friend's 1st grade classroom, I decided I wanted to teach. I returned to NC State for my Masters in Teaching with a concentration in Secondary Grades Education. I spent the first two years of my teaching career at Piedmont I.B. Middle School in uptown Charlotte, NC, where I taught 6th grade Language Arts and coached Cheerleading. After moving back to my hometown of Raleigh, NC, I spent 3 years teaching 7th grade Language Arts and served 2 years as the ELA department head at Ligon GT Magnet Middle School.

I enjoy spending my free time with my three-year-old son, Graham. I also like starting (and hopefully) finishing DIY projects around the house, going on walks with Graham and our dog, Finley, reading, and doing anything creative! I am looking forward to another successful and rewarding year in middle school :)
