Rebecca Johnson, PhD


Before falling in love with Salem, Rebecca was a college educator in the sciences and humanities for over 10 years.

Her favorite part of teaching? Inviting others to explore new ideas and ask the Big (and interesting!) questions in a safe and supportive environment.

Rebecca is a guide today because she loves learning about Salem, sharing it with others, and exploring why its stories are relevant to us here and now.

The histories we tell say just as much about us as they do about those who came before us.

At Dynamic History Salem we explore the idea that we make history, and history makes us.
