Rebecca Hopeck
Math Teacher




Hello friends, I have over 14 years teaching experience, 10 of which have been in special education with Denver Public Schools. I have taught everything from Kindergarten to residential treatment facility students. However, my heart and passion lies in educating students who are about to enter the world as young adults. By nature, mathematics is my favorite to teach because I take the mystery out of all those symbols and see much success with my students.

In my spare time, yeah right! Who has spare time these days ?? ;-) Exciting things that I like to make time for is enjoying this beautiful state. Originally, I am from upstate New York and the weather is much different. So I like to hike, bike, camp or just have coffee on my patio and watching my 6 and 7 year old run around. I also have completed 5 full marathons (that is 26.2 miles) and numerous half marathon, 10K and 5k races. In my training, I feel like have run every road Denver has to offer.

I am excited to start another successful year with TJ!
