Mrs. Rebecca Buckner Principal / Teacher

My name is Rebecca Buckner and I am the First and Second Grade Teacher at Faith Christian Academy. I have been teaching at FCA for 10 years and love every minute of it! Faith Christian is near and dear to my heart, not only because I am employed here, but also because I went to this school from the time I was in kindergarten. If that is not interesting enough, you might have figured out that my brother is Joshua Davis who is also a teacher here at FCA....and yes you guessed it, that would make Mrs. Davis and Pastor Rich my parents! It has been nothing short of a blast working with my family as well as all of the staff at FCA!

As far as my educational background, I received my Master's Degree in Education with and Early Childhood Specialization from Capella University in 2010. My BA was earned from Fresno Pacific University in 2009 and I obtained my AA degree from West Hills College in 2007.
