Mrs. Rachel Long
Hello parents, students, and community members! Welcome to Aiken High School. My name is Rachel Long. I have been living in Aiken, SC since about 2005. I graduated from South Aiken High School in 2012. After graduation, I attended Winthrop University for two years before transferring to USC Aiken where I graduated with a B. A. in Secondary Education. I am currently working on my Masters in Literacy at Clemson University. Education is a very important part of my life and I hope to pass that on to my students this year.
This will be my fourth year teaching high school. I am thrilled to teach Aiken iNNOVATE English I as well as IGCSE Literature in English at Aiken High School! I had the honor of completing my internship here and it is great to be back. We are going to have so much fun! I do everything I can to make my classes enjoyable, educational, and exciting! I sincerely hope to pass on my passion and excitement for literature and education to the students of Aiken High School.
