My Classroom Mission
Ms. Rainwater's English students will strive to learn the course curriculum, maintain passing grades, behave appropriately, and earn a high school diploma.
Hello and welcome to my webpage! I am starting my 26th year as an English teacher in the ISS system. I began my teaching career at South Iredell High School in 1993, then later taught at West Iredell and Statesville High schools before transferring back to South this year. I am the proud mother of two daughters, Abbey (19 years) and Halle, pronounced like Halle Berry, (16 years); the girls and I adopted a retired racing greyhound named Bernie Mac in 2012 and he visits sporting events, nursing homes and schools. Other than being a mom, my passion is teaching. My aspirations from the age of seven were either to be an archaeologist or a teacher; hmmm, I wonder how that turned out?! When I'm not on some kind of athletic field/court or in the classroom, I enjoy gardening, cooking, reading, photography, and spending time outdoors.
I graduated from Statesville High School in 1988
I attended Western Carolina University
I graduated from UNC-Charlotte in 1993 with a BA in English
I received National Board Certification in 2001
