Rebecca's classes

Rebecca McWilliams

middle school

Becky has been a member of the GSFS community for many years, ever since her oldest son entered Pre-Kindergarten. Becky was thrilled to join the faculty as a 6th grade lead teacher, and equally excited to now have two of her children at school with her. 


Becky holds a B.A. in English Literature from Bates College and an M.A. in English Education from New York University. Prior to entering the classroom, Becky worked for many years in children's book publishing at Scholastic, Inc. She then began her teaching career as a high school English and Humanities teacher in her hometown of New York City and went on to earn a post-baccalaureate degree in Elementary Education from Temple University upon moving to Philadelphia. In addition to classroom teaching, Becky has worked with adolescents in a variety of settings and loves nothing more than instilling a love of learning in her students. 


When not in the classroom, you might find Becky curled up with a good book, spending quality time on her yoga mat, jogging along Forbidden Drive, laughing loudly with friends and enjoying time with her husband, Blair, and three sons, Jackson, Kieran and Julian.
