• Ms. Rachel Bargender

This is probably the best school picture I've ever had taken. :)
  • While school is closed due to COVID-19, online lessons will be available through my Google Classroom pages. Please see those pages for directions, expectations, lesson materials, and due dates.

    Also, feel free to reach out to me by email if you have any questions: rabargender@gapps.stratford.k12.wi.us 

  • I teach multiple sections of three high school-level classes:

    Creative Writing--in which we discover the joy of writing and of telling our own stories.

    English III --in which we read, write, and hopefully have some fun along the way.

    English IV --in which we will read a variety of stories of interest to those of you at the senior level before you graduate.

    You can also find out more information on my Google Classroom webpages.

  • Hello, everyone! I'm Ms. Rachel Bargender, but you can call me Ms. B.

    I'm a graduate of Edgar High School, UW-Marathon County, and UW-Stevens Point, (and I wish I could add Hogwarts to that list).

    I'm an avid reader, a Goodreads reviewer, a notebook-keeper, an enthusiastic teacher, a movie-quoter, a sometime-drawer, a wannabe-baker, and a would-be traveler (though I make time every year to visit as many fictional places as I can.)

    I am convinced that I learn something from everyone who enters my classroom . . . and that I will never finish the list of books I want to read. ;)

  • P.S. If you'd like to check out my current list of favorite books (and, be advised, it changes sometimes), feel free to check out my list.
