Mrs. Caldwell (McLean)

Hi everyone! My name is Rebecca Caldwell (McLean) and I am very excited to begin my sixth year as your Hillside Elementary Librarian! I graduated from Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania in 2010 with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and certification in Early Childhood Education. In July of 2013 I received my certification in Library Science PK-12. In that same month I went back to graduate school at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania and I received my Master's in Reading and certification as a Reading Specialist in August of 2014. 
 
I went back to school again in the Spring of 2018 for another Master's. This time in Blended and Online Learning with a focus on Curriculum and Instruction. So far, it has been an exciting and beneficial program as it helps me in supporting our students in learning through the use of technology! I will be obtaining that degree this December!
 
In my spare time I love to read, play and watch sports especially volleyball and I'm also an avid Pittsburgh Penguins fan. I love to shop and spend time with my fiance, family and friends. I look forward to another great school year at Hillside!
