Ms. Rebecca Starnes
Mrs. Starnes graduated from Carson Newman University with Bachelor of Science degrees in Elementary Education and Early Childhood and a minor in Special Education. I began teaching in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso in West Africa with the International Mission Board teaching Baptist missionary children. Upon returning to the United States, I taught several years in Tennessee and Florida before settling down in North Carolina. I have taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades in Guilford County for the past 22 years. I earned my Master's of Education: Technology in the Elementary Classroom in 2010 from Grand Canyon University. In 2017, I joined the Southern staff as the Curriculum Facilitator.
Outside of school I enjoy time on the lake with my 2 sons and their families. I also enjoy reading, working puzzles, playing games, and baking in the kitchen.
