Mrs. Rachel Barnes - English
I am starting my 27th year of teaching here on Cape Cod, and I am thrilled we are back to in-person learning! 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 and in the auditorium with the Drama Club. 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 traveling to new places.
