Becca teaches English and Humanities at Hawken Upper School in Cleveland, Ohio. She earned her B.A. in English at Ohio State and her Master’s in Education at Harvard. While she chaperoned the Hawken team’s trip to Harvard in 2016 simply to visit friends from grad school, she quickly fell in love with Speech and Debate and the hardworking, passionate students who channel their voices through the activity. At Hawken, she primarily coaches Extemp and Congress. Her Extempers and Congressional debaters have earned over 50 bids to the TOC since she began coaching in 2016; they’ve reached semifinal and final rounds at UK, Yale, Minneapple, Glenbrooks, ASU, Emory, Stanford, the Ohio Speech and Debate Association state tournament, TOC, NCFL Grand Nationals, and NSDA Nationals. In the 2018-19 season, she coached the state champion Congressional debater in Ohio, the TOC champion presiding officer, and the 8th place representative in the House at NSDA Nationals. She loves coaching Congress and ISD, and can’t wait for another fantastic summer!
