Rebecca Zender


My name is Rebecca Zender, and I am one of the math teachers at Justice Page Middle School. This is my third year at Justice Page, and I am so thankful to be a part of the Justice Page community. During the 2019-2020 school year, I will teach Algebra 8, Geometry, and Focus Math 8. I will also serve as an 8th grade Crew leader. 

I am originally from Madison, Wisconsin but moved to Minneapolis for college. I received my Bachelor’s of Chemical Engineering from the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities in 2014. After finishing my undergraduate studies, I served one year with Minnesota Math Corps where I discovered my passion for working with students and for helping to make math more accessible to all students. I earned my 5-12 Mathematics teaching license from Augsburg College (now Augsburg University), and I am currently working towards my Master of Arts in Education degree from Augsburg as well.

When I am not teaching, I like to spend time with friends and family, read, spend time outside, listen to podcasts, play board games and card games, and go to trivia nights.

Thank you for sharing your students with me! It will be a great year!
