Ms. Rebecca Burger
Welcome to my webpage! This is my fifth year as a co-chair and a teacher for the Special Education Department for Leyden High School District 212. During my 17 years in the world of education, I have taught English I, English II, English III, English IV and Consumer Education. In addition, I taught a class called Transitions that focused on planning for the work world, post secondary school and life outside of high school. I have also worked as a work program coordinator for 11th and 12th graders. I am currently teaching in our Transition Program at West Leyden High School.
Not only do I love teaching, but I also love learning! I enjoy attending educational conferences, learning from my colleagues and taking graduate courses. I received my bachelor's degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in Special Education. I also earned a masters degree from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in Special Education with a focus on curriculum adaptations. Most recently, I completed my degree in Educational Leadership with the Principalship Endorsement.
I am beyond fortunate to work with amazing teachers in the Special Education Department. They are the hardest working people I have ever met and I am proud to work with each and every one of them.
