My name is Raine F. I earned my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from Pacific University in 2008. I have enjoyed many teaching experiences, both short and long-term substitute teaching in grades Kindergarten to Sixth grade for over seven years. I most recently had the opportunity to teach First Grade at Valley Arts and Science Academy Charter school. Prior to that I taught First Grade at Kerman-Floyd Elementary for two years. The role of education is something I take seriously. I can say with great confidence that I have the passion, drive, and skills required to provide an excellent education for my students, academically and socially. I possess the abilities to instill a love of learning, respect for one's self and others, an appreciation of the environment, as well as provide a challenging curriculum to ensure academic success.
