Mrs. Becca Wilson
I graduated from Florida State University with a Bachelor of Science degree and later a Master of Science degree in Child Development with a concentration in Child Life. I worked as a Child Life Specialist for almost 10 years in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Birmingham, Alabama, and Huntsville, Alabama with children and families in hospitals. As a Child Life Specialist I had the privilege of serving patients diagnosed with cancer, burn victims, and children having surgery.
I graduated from the University of Alabama at Birmingham with a Master of Arts degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education in 2013. I began teaching at Mill Creek in 3rd grade in 2013 and then moved to 1st grade in 2014. I have been teaching 1st grade ever since. I love this age group and enjoy being a part of such a foundational time in the lives of my students. I obtained National Board Certification in 2018.
My husband, Trav, and I live in Madison with our two daughters, Alex and Lucy. I am a huge college football fan, and love the Florida State Seminoles. My husband is an Auburn graduate, so I also cheer for them each year. I love to read, go to the beach, and watch college football.
I love children and believe that every child has value and the potential to learn. It is my goal to be a positive influence for all of my students and instill in them a passion for life-long learning. Students in my classroom are very active learners who are encouraged to think and solve problems. I believe in creating a space where all children feel safe and secure and free to share their ideas and opinions. I believe that reading is the foundation for all learning and incorporate reading across all subjects. I am committed to doing whatever it takes to help students succeed.
