Ms. McBride

The SJHS students are very lucky to have the teachers that they have now. Ms. McBride, is one of these teachers. She teaches English, and has a lot to say about how much she loves her job and her students. 

“This year I teach all eighth grade English, with one elective (Film Studies). I used to teach seventh grade, but I'm not this year,” said Ms. McBride. 

“My favorite thing about my job is getting to know my students. I love when a student tells me something funny that makes me laugh, or I get to read an awesome story that a student writes, or I see a student being an ally and looking out for people who need friends. I am really impressed by the students at our school, and I'm glad I get to spend time with them,” said Ms. McBride. 

“I never really wanted to be a teacher until after I graduated from college. I got a degree in English at BYU and then worked as an editor/writer for a year. After that I realized I would rather be teaching instead, so I went back to school for a year, and now I'm here at Springville Junior. I am really glad I made the change because I love being a teacher. Sometimes my job is stressful, but it's definitely worth it,” said Ms. McBride.

Ms. McBride is a wonderful teacher, who we hope will stay at SJHS for many more years!
