Hello. My name is Rebecca Blackmon. The 2018 - 2019 school year marks the beginning of my 8th year teaching at Pamlico County Middle School as an Exceptional Children's Teacher. I co-teach 6th grade English Language Arts (ELA) and Math with Ms. Gaskill and Ms. Leary, respectively. I am a native of New Haven, CT but have been residing in North Carolina since 2002. My pathway into teaching was an interesting journey. I completed a B.S. in Psychology at Oakwood University followed by a M.S. in Rehabilitation Counseling. Eventually, I received my Special Education Teaching Licensure through East Carolina University in 2014. In the end, my greatest reward is helping students from various backgrounds and abilities make progress each year towards their goals and future.
