Rebecca Malmquist grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan, the youngest daughter in a family of five. Now a wife and mother in her own quintet, she loves to spend time laughing and talking with family and friends and walking her Weimaraner. As a teacher, she is very interested in integrating brain science with classroom practices, project-based learning, flexible classrooms, and engaging thinking (skill, not drill). In her spare time, she enjoys yoga and Sudarshan Kriya (a.k.a. SKY) a breathing technique that facilitates meditation. She volunteers for Broadway Grand Rapids and SKY Grand Rapids, loves to cook and bake, and enjoys listening to podcasts and acoustic guitar music.
By reading the bio above, you’d probably imagine that Rebecca’s life is always wonderful and full of sunshine. You might even be a little jealous… but her family has… oh, how can we say this without giving it all away… her family has somewhat of a curse on them. Rebecca will give you more background on this misfortune, and tell you about how she has dealt with it in her presentation, Unexpected Hanging Paradox.
