Eddy Webb – Second Grade Teacher
Eddy has been teaching at Rainbow Community School since 2003, with a brief hiatus to pursue personal interests. He is so grateful to witness and be part of the evolution and growth of Rainbow over the years.
Eddy seeks to inspire his students with his own enthusiasm for life and learning, modeling risk-taking and mindful reflection. His goal is to make learning a fun adventure for his class with lots of real-world experiences and time in nature. Eddy appreciates Rainbow’s Seven Domains™ model and project-based learning, ensuring his students learn and then share their understanding using a variety of intelligences. He plays the guitar and sings with children every day, instilling the idea that we can all be active participants in life, making the world a better place by sharing a song or whatever gift we have to offer.
Eddy earned a Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology to learn more about the diversity of culture, but ended up appreciating the unity of the human family. After managing a metaphysical crystal business in Sedona, AZ, and doing electrical work in Florida and Tennessee, he pursued his Master of Arts in Teaching degree. He has also been part of Harvard University’s Project Zero Classroom project, studying under Howard Gardner, the developer of the multiple intelligence theory.
When he’s not in the classroom or helping plan community events, you might find Eddy paddling on a local river, mushroom foraging with his grown-up daughter, or singing songs around a campfire with friends and family.
