Third Grade Homeroom Teacher
Hello, My name is Jacque Raines and I am looking forward to teaching the 3rd grade and am really excited about the upcoming year. I am from Granbury, Texas and worked in the social services field with youth for many years before taking a job in Alaska after my children left home. I worked as an Environmental, Safety and Health Manager and EMT. It was during this time that I taught many classes to speakers of other languages who were employees of the company and received my TEFL certification. Even though my first experience was with adults, I fell in love with teaching English and have since taught in the Middle East and China. I also have a specialty in Business English. I have a wide range of class room experience and have taught ages K-12thgrade and University. I also taught for the Ministry of Education in Kurdistan, teaching the Kurdish teachers English. I received my BS from Texas Christian University and worked on my Master’s at University of Texas at Arlington. Our Children are our most important legacy and I am very honored to be able to contribute to their success in education and life!
