Rebecca earned her PhD from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2017 in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus on Language and Literacy and Bilingual Education and her MA in Latin American Studies in 2012. Her research interests have taken her from intercultural bilingual classrooms in Peru, where she worked with Quechua-speaking students learning Spanish as a second language to urban classrooms in Kentucky where she worked with Indigenous multilingual Guatemalan students learning English as a third language. Across her work as both a researcher and teacher-educator, she has been guided by a desire to examine the realities and challenges of second- and third-language learning, particularly across cultural, linguistic, socio-economic, and national borders.
