Rebecca’s favorite thing about Columbus Academy
I love the sense of community and the view of Hondros field from our classroom.

Little-known fact
I am an avid reader and always have a book with me. My guilty pleasure is reading Young Adult Literature. I especially love to read outside – on our porch, by the pool, or, ideally, at the beach.”

Favorite sports team
UConn basketball (I grew up near campus).
