Rebecca Nissen

Teacher – Born and raised in the Hudson Valley, Rebecca is excited to be heading a bit further down the Hudson River to join the staff at Haven Academy Middle. She has always had a passion for Mathematics, and the way numbers interact with our every day lives. While completing her general education requirements for her Bachelor’s Degree, she began tutoring students in Math and discovered her love for teaching the subject. She was soon running a tutoring business for dozens of students who ranged in age from 8 to 27, and had varing needs and abilities. She recieved her Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with a focus in Mathematics from SUNY New Paltz in 2018. During her placements in two elementary schools upstate, she decided she wanted to focus on sharing her passion for Mathematics with the middle school population. In her free time Rebecca likes to hike, read, drink coffee, and eat delicious food, all while in the company of her loved ones.
