Rebecca Southward

I am a 2001 graduate of Teays Valley High School. As a Teays Valley student, I was always very proud to be a Viking! Now, as a teacher, I continue to be very proud of the Blue and Gold. I believe that our school district has a tradition of excellence and dedication to our community and students. GO VIKINGS!!
