Rebecca Martin

Rebecca graduated from UCSB with degrees in theater (acting) and literature, and began teaching at a Montessori school right after, leading drama classes and directing plays there school programs. She also created workshops in musical theater, poetry, puppet and story theater. While working her way through college at a children’s’ bookstore, she became the person willing to wear the “big headed” costumes from the book publishers for Saturday morning story hour. This later developed into her own story theater hour and the discovery of the art of storytelling. Listeners began inviting her to parties and schools, and her career as a professional storyteller began.

She has since performed, sung and taught at hundreds of libraries, schools and community events all over California and beyond … and has been seen telling stories on PBS. Rebecca recently participated in a grant through Theater West to teach choir and music in city schools. She travels around the city as a teaching artist, delighting in sharing music and theater, and helping children find their voice. As an actress, she’s  been in Shakespeare companies, various film and theater roles and a regular member of the Improv group Slow…Children at Play in North Hollywood.

Though still influenced by Waldorf where her kids attended, Rebecca is thrilled to be designing a creative and personal homeschool adventure with her two sons.

Rebecca currently teaches:

  • Early Years
