empha-sis in challenging behavior. As a licensed social worker, Rebecca’s approach is to treat all areas of a child’s life, not
just the behavior. While Rebecca’s passion lies in working directly with young children, she has found renewed enjoyment in
traveling throughout the state of Texas and meeting with child care teachers and directors, discovering ways to continually
improve upon the way we serve our most precious assets
