Meet Ms. Rebecca Chwalk - of Tiverton Middle School

TPS: What would the students be surprised to find out about you?
Ms. Chwalk: Students might be surprised to know that I spent a year living on my sailboat with my family when I was in the 6th grade. We sailed to Bermuda, the Azores, Spain and Portugal and many islands in the Caribbean.

TPS: What is your dream vacation?
Ms. Chwalk: The trip with my family ignited a love for travel and exploring new places. After college I decided to go on a backpacking trip to Australia, New Zealand, Thailand and Nepal. It was an unforgettable experience that exposed me to adventure, hiking, and lots of new foods. I would love to travel to Nepal with my husband and two boys. I think they would love the hiking!

TPS: What can you cook to perfection? Are you willing to share the recipe?
Ms. Chwalk: I love to cook and eat tacos! Carnitas--pulled pork tacos--are my favorite, but we also have them with chicken, ground turkey or beef and we always add lots of toppings like radishes, tomatoes, black beans, jalapeños, avocado, and cheese. Yum!!!

TPS: What inspires you?
Ms. Chwalk: My students inspire me. When we read and write in class, I love to make connections to the things that students do outside of school. Some are artists, musicians, equestrians, tinkerers, dirt bike riders, and skiers. My students expose me to new activities, interests and ideas.

TPS: If you could pass on any wisdom to your students, what would you share?
Ms. Chwalk: I want my students to find joy in learning and doing things they love. Middle school is a time of personal discovery and change. Maybe you pick up an instrument or try a new sport. Maybe you discover a gift for coding or sculpting. No matter what, take risks and try new things. You never know what hidden talents you’ll discover.

Thank you so much for your time Ms. Chwalk!
