Hello, I'm Rebecca Wickstrom, and this is my 16th year here at Ranch View. I was born and raised in Iowa, and I've taught language arts for 24 years. I graduated from the University of South Dakota with a B.A. in English and a B.S. in Secondary Education. In the past, I've also coached gymnastics, track, and cross country.

In the warmer months, I like to camp and bike in our beautiful state of Colorado. My other half and I have two beautiful Pointer pups, and they think camping in the mountains is Disney Land! I used to be an avid road cyclist, riding since my teens; however, the past several years, I've really enjoyed the challenges of mountain biking and down hilling. I also love yoga and reading, and if the mood strikes, I'm down for a scenic hike!

I am excited to get to know my students and hope for a positive year! Middle schoolers are so eager and energetic, so I feel like I really connect with this age group well. I'm pretty friendly and approachable, so feel free to contact me at any time if you have concerns or questions. 

Here's to a great 7th grade year!
