Hefner, Rebecca

This semester I am teaching the Graduation Project Seminar. However, this is the last semester for the course. Normally I teach English 111 and Brit Lit 242 for college credit. 
I began my teaching career teaching high school English in New York state. I received both my Bachelors (Secondary Education - English) and Masters (English) degrees at the State University of New Paltz. Upon moving to the South, I added AIG licensure, AP Literature certification, and National Board certification (twice).
Prior to joining the BCEC staff, I worked at Catawba County schools as a high school English teacher and department chair. I have been teaching for 24 years, predominately high school. I also taught English and writing classes at Catawba Valley Community College for five years.  
I firmly believe that English literature and language skills are the best subjects to study. I hope to share that passion with my students.
