Success Story

Rebecca Kaufman

(2021 graduate)

Elementary Teacher at Hillsboro Elementary (Hillsboro, Kan.)

“Tabor has prepared me for teaching by giving me a Christ-centered, educational foundation. I have gained skills and real-world experiences in the classroom. Looking back at my time at Tabor I am thankful for the loving care and support given to me by each professor. I have formed relationships that will continue to support me as I embark in my journey as an educator.”
