Mrs. Rachel Barnes - English
I am starting my 26th year of teaching here on Cape Cod, and I can guarantee you I have never taught quite like this for the last 25! I have taught English every year, but I have also taught both music and history in the past. I enjoy working collaboratively with my colleagues to design units that are interdisciplinary so that each learning experience helps students out in more than one subject. I can often be found in the music wing of the school practicing with the Monomoy Ringers, our high school bell choir. Yes, I am married to Mr. Barnes, the middle school STEM teacher, and our daughter is a recent MRHS graduate. I enjoy reading (no surprise there), fiber arts, cooking, music of all kinds, and walking my tri-pawed dog Sister.
