Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Rebecca "Becky" Reaver

Hello there! My name is Becky Reaver and I am the principal of Cordley Elementary School. I initially came to Lawrence in 1996 to get my degree in Elementary and Special Education at KU and I never left! I have fallen in love with the Lawrence community and specifically my Cordley home.  I started here in 2000 as an intern and have returned to Cordley twice as I love the way this community supports kids!  

I am an avid outdoor enthusiast and spend as much time as possible outside! My husband, Devin Heath, and I have 6 children and 1 grandchild who live in Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, and Tennessee, so we spend a lot of our time traveling from place to place to visit them as well as in our favorite mountain spots in the western part of the country. 

I know that at the heart of all great learning experiences is an environment where students feel comfortable being themselves and have healthy, happy relationships with their peers and teachers. Families need to feel invited into the school and a vital part of the community as well. Together we make the strongest team for our students. :) 

I love supporting teachers and students and consider myself a tenacious advocate for equity in our learning community, so that we can make sure each and every student has the opportunity to be their best.  

Do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. I would love the opportunity to connect with you. :)
