Rachel E. Barlow
Social Studies Department Chair
I love being a teacher! In one way or another I have been involved in education since 1996: as a registrar, the admissions director, school administrator and history teacher. Being a teacher is by far the best! I’m always excited to learn and teach new things and I love working with teenagers – they’re truly the best part of this career. When I have free time I love to take my dogs and explore the canyons, experiment with cooking new recipes, knit stuffed animals and read, read, read! But I have little free time because I get to be a mama to the best kid ever. Parenting never ends but that’s ok because my daughter and I are best friends. She keeps me young and that’s why I still love teaching and working with our wonderful students at Merit.
