Dr. Rebecca Robinson
I am Rebecca Robinson and I currently work as the Chair of the Department of Education at Talladega College. With this role, I serve as an advisor to the education students, schedule classes, write curriculum, and manage the day-to-day functions of the department. I also serve as the Coordinator of Field Experiences and Certification Officer for the Education Department. Most importantly, I teach future teachers.
I truly believe in education as evidenced by the time I have spent pursuing degrees. I have a Master’s and AA (Sixth Year) degree in Elementary Education. After I decided that I wanted to become a principal, I returned to school to obtain administration certification at the master's and AA levels. At age fifty-two, I decided to join some of my younger teacher friends to pursue a life-long dream of receiving a terminal degree. Graduating in 2009 with a doctoral degree in Education Leadership was one of my greatest accomplishments.
Prior to joining the faculty of Talladega College in 2014, I proudly served the boys and girls of Talladega County for thirty-eight years as a teacher and principal. I began and ended my time with Talladega county in my hometown of Munford where I taught fifth-graders for nine years and returned nineteen years later to be the principal of Munford Elementary School. I was also privileged to work in the south end of Talladega county as an Assistant Principal and the Principal of B. B. Comer Memorial Elementary School.
Throughout my career, I have always strived to promote a strong instructional foundation for student learning and have conducted professional development sessions for educators at the national, state, and local level. I try to be an encourager for teachers and students to be successful and further their education. My greatest achievements occur when a teacher or student tells me that I have helped them further their education.
I am married to John R. Robinson and I have two adult children, Andy and Emily. The “lights of my life” are my twin grandsons, Colton and Clayton.
I presently serve on the Citizens Brookwood Talladega Advisory Board, Talladega County Education Foundation, and the Secretary of the Gamma Mu chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma Education Sorority. I have a strong faith and am a member of Munford Baptist Church.
