Ms. Rachel Neeley is just one of the amazing teachers here at SJHS. Ms. Neeley teaches seventh-grade English, yearbook, and creative writing. This is Ms. Neeley’s sixth year teaching. Ms. Neeley said, “I wanted to be a teacher ever since I was little. I loved reading and writing when I was in school. I was pretty good at it, so I decided to teach English.”

Ms. Neeley loves teaching is because of her students and some of the funny stuff they say.  In creative writing, one of the assignments is a list of 52.  A group of boys is writing "52 Ways to Get Dumped.” Ms. Neeley said, “It was a hilarious list of things boys could do to get dumped.” The students think she is funny to. Ethan Knowlton, a seventh-grade student, said, “she teaches well, but she still knows how to have fun.  She is such a cool and fair teacher; she knows how to talk to us.”

Students agree that her class is really fun. Katy Kendall, a seventh grader, said, “I like the activities.”  Marissa Colson, another seventh grader said, “When something funny comes up we all laugh, it’s one of my favorite classes.” Spencer Duncan, an eighth grader in her yearbook class, said, “Ms. Neeley is so nice and fun to talk to.”
