Ms. Rebecca Zivin


Hello Wolfpack, I'm Rebecca Zivin! I was born in Chicago and raised right here in Plano. I attended Southern Methodist University for my Bachelors and Masters degrees, and I'm thrilled to teach American Studies (AMSTUD), the combination of AP English Language and Composition and AP US History. This dynamic course provides opportunities for students to explore aspects of American culture and identity through lively discussions, creative projects, and constant incorporation of the Humanities. I encourage my students to challenge themselves and hope they love the class as much as I do!
