Rebecca Bush has loved reading and learning from a young age, inspired by her grandmother, one of the first female university deans in the United States. Rebecca began her academic career graduating with honors from St. John's School, which is ranked as one of the top college preparatory schools in the US.
She went on to graduate on the Dean's List from the University of California - Berkeley, before moving to Honduras to begin work as an educator for underprivileged children. Rebecca has a Masters degree from the University of Alabama in Elementary Education, Instruction and Curriculum, as well as a Masters in Advanced Literary from Concordia University. She graduated both Masters with honors and distinctions. Rebecca has also completed advanced training courses to be a Certified Academic Language Therapist.
Rebecca is a certified reading specialist, special education teacher, bilingual instructor, and dyslexia therapist with over a decade of experience in education in North and South America, and at two of the most recognizable international schools in Hong Kong. She has worked not only in the classroom, but also served as a guest lecturer, teacher trainer, advisor, curriculum developer, and reading specialist. She is also trilingual, speaking Spanish and Portuguese.

Aside from her love of reading, Rebecca enjoys being around animals.
