My name is Becky.
I am a Health and Physical Education Teacher at Northeast Middle School in Bethlehem. I have been teaching at Northeast for 7 years. I have amazing co-workers that like to take the same RTC classes as me.
I enjoy sports, cross-stitch, skiing, hiking, fitness, learning as much as I can about nutrition, movies, travel and museums.
I find it neat that I attended "Northeast" High School in Philadelphia and now I teach at "Northeast" Middle School in Bethlehem. Might seem lame to some, but oh well.
I have a boyfriend, Jim, who is currently stationed at Fort Riley in Kansas. He just got back in November from his first deployment, and is trying to get used to being home and re-acclimating himself.
