Mrs. Rebecca Messimer


My name is Rebecca Messimer-Kitchen (pronounced Messy-mur). I was born and raised in Dallas, TX. Teaching is a big part of my family so it was only natural that I became a teacher as well. My father has been an elementary art teacher for almost 30 years, my mother was a clinical nurse educator before moving into the technical field, and my older sister is a literaure professor at The Savannah College of Art and Design. I am married to my wonderful husband, Charlie Kitchen, who works in arts non-profit and does art photography. We have two very cute and spoiled dogs together, Slayer and Elam. I enjoy traveling, camping, hiking, gardening, reading, and cooking. I am also currently learning Spanish.

This will be my seventh year teaching Kindergarten at Montgomery Elementary. I am the Inclusion Kindergarten Teacher (where general education and special needs students learn together in the same classroom) so I will be working alongside my co-teacher, Ms. Schmidt to help all of our student's be successful. I am also the Kindergarten grade level leader!

This year will be extremely difficult due to COVID-19, but I am going to do my best to meet all student's needs and help achieve success in their learning. Technology will be a BIG piece of how we will learn this year so please be sure you get familiar with the links below. I also have many Youtube videos on how to use this technology. We're in this together, so let's remain positive and keep the line of communication open!
