Degrees and Certifications:
Rachel Stanley - 7th Grade (Language Arts)
I am excited to be starting my sixth year at JMS and my thirteenth year teaching. I took a detour for a few years when my children were small to open a local little candy shop for three years and then I worked for Woodward West's boarding school for a couple of years.
I've been back in the classroom for seven years, and teaching middle school students is an incredibly fun way to spend the day! Moving from teaching high school to middle school was a big leap, but one I am glad I took. Middle school students are amazing!
I am a product of the TUSD public schools and have one daughter who graduated from THS last year, one daughter who is a freshman at THS, and one in 5th grade at Cummings.
It is rewarding to work with such an incredible staff at JMS. They care about the kids and go above and beyond to help them be successful. I look forward to an incredible year!
