Hello, my name is Rebecca Istre. I am from Fredericksburg, Virginia and have lived there all my life. I grew up with four brothers, all older than I. For as long as I could remember, I had always wanted to be a teacher. History was my favorite topic and I knew that as important of a topic it is, not many appreciate it beyond school. It is seen that history repeats itself through time, therefore should be taught and respected to prevent certain aspects of history repeating. As a teacher, I want to express my love for history into the youth of today and create a better understanding of the importance of our nation’s upbringing.
