Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to 1st grade! My name is Becky Wanless-Bobo (students can call me Mrs. B) and I've been a teacher at NAPLS since 2005. During my time at NAPLS I have taught both 1st and 2nd grade.
I attended The College of Wooster (in Wooster, Ohio) and majored in Communication Sciences and Disorders and Elementary Education and earned two Master's Degrees from The Ohio State University- Go Bucks! In addition to teaching, I am also an educational coach and consultant for Responsive Classroom and one of the authors of the book, "Empowering Educators: A Comprehensive Guide to Teaching Grades K, 1, 2."
My husband TeJae and I live near downtown Columbus with our two dogs, Kobe (4 year old Schnoodle) and Clementine (12 week old schnauzer). We are often found walking our dogs near the Scioto River, wandering around German Village with coffees in hand or perusing through The North Market. Some of my passions include art (creating and admiring), interior design, reading, dogs, coffee, and education.
Throughout this school year your child will encounter many new experiences, conquer several challenges, learn new things, make lasting friendships, and one thing that helps make this possible is our teacher-family partnership. As we work through this year together I encourage you to follow me on Twitter at @Miss_Wanless to see what we're working on in class and contact me via email at email@example.com with questions, concerns and/or comments. I'm looking forward to a wonderful year in 1st grade!
