 Mrs. Caras has been teaching for nineteen years. She has been teaching at SJHS for fifteen of those years. She teaches ninth grade Earth Science and students love her.

“Mrs. Caras is so fun and spunky. I’m never bored in her class,” said Katie Peterson, a ninth grader in Mrs. Caras’s class. 

Mrs. Caras also has many hobbies. She loves to watch football and sometimes baseball on TV. “I love sports - 49ers & SF Giants are my favorite teams. I love to read when I have time, watch my kids/grandkids play soccer, hockey, or whatever they're interested in,” said Mrs. Caras.

Spotlight on Mrs. Wimmer

Autumn Olsen, SJHS Journalism Writer

Mrs. Wimmer is the attendant secretary at SJHS. She helps students stay under the limit of tardies they can have in a term. Whenever you get a Mandatory Intervention slip, it is from her. She records all of the Quest Time tickets in her office.

“Since I love kids, and I know they are just trying to figure things out, it is easy to work with them,” said Mrs. Wimmer.

Mrs. Wimmer enjoys working with the ladies in the office, and is happy that everyone is willing to help.
