Rebecca Oberg
Greetings RHS 9th grade students and families! My name is Rebecca Oberg and I teach English 9 at Roosevelt. My 3rd and 4th hours are co-taught with Antonia Dempsey and my 6th and 7th hours are co-taught with Emily Braudt.
This is my eleventh year teaching at Roosevelt, 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. This year, I'll also be observing and coaching teachers through a district position.
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 so 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. 
Feel free to contact me anytime at Email is the best way to reach me. I'm also available for student/parent/teacher conferences by appointment--my room number is 135. 
Students, Google Classroom is an important part of this course. Please enroll using the code kg1m9qj and stay up-to-date with what's happening in English 9! Assignments and updates will be posted regularly.
Thank you! Let's have a great year, Teddies!
