Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Rakestraw

This is my 10th year teaching! I taught 5th grade math for five years. Four years ago, my husband and I moved to Gainesville to be closer to our family. The first three years that I was here, I taught 4th grade math. Last year, I taught 3rd grade math, science, and social studies. This will be the first year that I will teach in a dual language classroom and to teach ELAR. I am extremely excited about both new adventures! I will learn as much from your children as they learn from me. One of my favorite sayings is, "Never stop learning!" This year is going to be a great year for us all!
