You would be hard-pressed to find a teacher who is more of an inspiration to their students than Rebecca Resnick. She shows up to the classroom with a positive attitude and encourages her students to give back in any way they can.
In her free time, Rebecca mentors breast cancer patients through Imerman Angels and Gilda's Club Chicago, both organizations that offer free support to patients in Chicago. In addition, she is a member of the JUF YLD Community Service Committee and a LEADS leader.
