Dear Families,

Welcome to the world of 4th grade! I am so pleased to be your child's teacher for the 2022-2023 school year. We have many exciting learning experiences ahead of us! I look forward to meeting all parents on Curriculum Night!


This is my 23rd year teaching at Rutledge Hall, and my 22nd year teaching fourth grade. I taught one year in 3rd grade, which helped me gain a better perspective on my incoming 4th graders! I have a Master's degree in Teaching and Leadership, Reading, and Literacy. I have an endorsement in English as a Second Language and a Reading Specialist Certificate. I am a life-long learner and hope to pass on this passion to all of my students!


I have a sixteen year old daughter who is a junior at Niles West. My daughter and I are both animal lovers. We have a rescue mutt named Theo, a retired greyhound named Detroit, and the boss of the house, a cat named Remy.  After work, I enjoy taking the dogs on walks around the neighborhood-or maybe they are walking me!



I am very excited to see all of you on August 24th. Please come to school ready to learn and to have fun! Make sure you bring all of your school supplies, labeled with your first and last name. Please check the Rutledge Hall website for the 4th grade supply list.


See you soon!

Ms. Rainey
