Greetings RHS 9th graders and journalists! My name is Rebecca Oberg and I teach English 9 and Intro to Journalism at Roosevelt.
 
This is my ninth year teaching at Roosvelt, and while my primary focus has been 9th grade I have also taught several other courses and worked as the building's Literacy Specialist. I also serve as an Induction Coordinator, helping new teachers achieve tenure in Minneapolis.
 
I majored in English, Geography, and European Studies at the University of Minnesota. I also earned my Masters of Education from the University of Minnesota. Go Gophers!
 
My classroom is an active classroom. Students are participating in and leading high level discussions and discourse, creating dynamic works of writing, reading and analyzing high quality literature, and much more! We currently collaborate with some amazing community partners, such as the Guthrie Theater and Project Success, to bring theater into the English 9 curriculum as a lens for bringing complex texts to life in a new way. 
 
I encourage you to check out the fantastic articles my Intro to Journalism students create for our school newspaper online. It's called The Roosevelt Standard and you don't want to miss it!
 
Feel free to contact me anytime at rebecca.oberg@mpls.k12.mn.us. Email is the best way to reach me. I'm also available for parent/teacher conferences by appointment--my room number is 135.
 
Thank you! Let's have a great year, Teddies!
