Becky finds joy in bringing math and science to life for her students through real world examples and demonstrations as often as possible. While teaching her students important content, she is also training them to evaluate their own work and develop effective study skills.
Becky is a homeschool mom and a military spouse. In 2004, she graduated from the United States Naval Academy with a Bachelor of Science in chemistry. For two years she served as a chemist on active duty in the Air Force where she met her husband. After leaving active duty, Becky taught high school chemistry in California. Following the births of their three boys, the Ekholms decided to homeschool, and Becky continued to teach in various homeschool and hybrid school settings. The Air Force has given the Ekholms the adventure of living in six different states (and counting!).
