Mrs. Bass, an English teacher at SJHS, has been an English teacher for 13 years, and has been teaching at SJHS for 9 years. 

“My favorite part of teaching is working with kids. I love interacting and helping others explore ideas, find new information, make connections, and share,” said Mrs. Bass. 

“It’s a little ironic why I chose to become an English teacher. I always felt like writing was my weakness. But as I learned how to become a better writer, I feel like I was able to change my story and make writing a strength. If I could figure it out, then why couldn’t I help others figure it out too,” said Mrs. Bass. 

According to Mrs. Bass she also teaches an ESL class. Mrs. Bass has also has a PE degree and taught PE for four years at the high school level. 

“She is funny, nice and makes English fun,” said Madison Petersen, a student in Mrs. Bass’ English class. Madison likes how Mrs. Bass lets the students do more activities where they can talk to each other. 

According to Kaden Garci and Flynn Golding, students in Mrs. Bass’s class, Mrs. Bass is nice and she makes English easy, and it is easy to learn in her class.
