Rebecca Facktor

Rebecca Facktor comes to St. Martha after one year of teaching at St. Leonard, where she attended grade school. She went on to Ballard High School where she ran Cross Country and Track. She continued the sport into college at Transylvania University where she graduated in 2019 with a Bachelors in Elementary Education. Rebecca considers herself a lifelong student and is always looking for opportunities to learn new things, through books, experiences, and documentaries. Rebecca is excited to be a part of the St. Martha community!

"I loved being a part of a Catholic Community growing up! I think it is important for students to have that strong community to support their learning and growth."

Q & A with Rebecca Facktor

Highlight of the year:

It’s the year of COVID, so the highlight has been the day we found out that we got to go back to in-person instruction!

Passion:

My passion is for students to see the important roles that they can play in their community. Incorporating the things that they learn in all subjects and applying it to their life.

Favorite part of teaching:

My favorite part of teaching is when students get excited about what they are learning. I love when that excitement grows into more curiosity that then encourages students to take charge of their learning. 

Favorite thing about St. Martha:

I love that St. Martha welcomed me with open arms. I love the support from the staff and the families!

My hope for my students:

My hope for my students is that they gain confidence in the special skills that they have.

Fun fact:

I love to travel! My favorite places that I have been are Israel, Spain, and Rocky Mountain National Park!

Family is the Best Word

"The teachers are really vested in the kids long after they leave their classes. Family is the best word to describe St. Martha and prepared is the best word to describe my son after his time there.”
