Staff bio picture for Rebecca Stooks

Rebecca Stooks is a Richmond native and, prior to joining ALT Lab, she taught English at a high school in Henrico County for 10 years. In that time, she taught a variety of different courses, but she is most proud of her involvement in helping to lay the groundwork for her school’s dual enrollment program with a local community college. Her years as a public educator have made her a pro when it comes to practical teaching techniques, creative approaches to delivering content, and differentiating instruction to cater to all learning styles. Rebecca obtained both her bachelor’s and master’s in English from Longwood University, with focuses in education and writing. When she isn’t working or trying to keep up with her active toddler, Rebecca loves writing speculative fiction (that’s fancy talk for sci-fi and fantasy); she has even published a few short stories and she fancies the idea of one day publishing a novel.
