Degrees and Certifications:
Greetings from Ms. Rains!
I am so excited to be a part of Gainesville Junior High School. I look forward to yet another exciting school year. This year will be my 15th year in education. These last 5 years I have served as an administrator. I began my teaching career in Walnut Bend ISD where I taught Science/Fine Arts and Coached JH girls volleyball and basketball for one year. I then obtained a teaching position in Gainesville ISD at Chalmers Elementary, where I was a 3rd grade teacher for 5 years, and later an Instructional Facilitator for that campus. After leaving there, I taught 2 years in Oklahoma in Thackerville Public School.
I moved from there to Gold-Burg ISD in Bowie, Texas, where I served 2 years as the Elementary Principal. I’m coming back to Gainesville ISD from Nocona Elementary where I served as the Assistant Principal for 3 years. I have enjoyed my experiences and have continued to learn and grow through my years in education. I hope to bring a lot of excitement, knowledge and assistance to the Gainesville Junior High School.
It’s always a great day to be a Leopard!
