Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to our GT classroom! I am so excited to have your child in my class.
My name is Raina Patton and I am new to Tyler ISD. I have been in education for 17 years and this is my 8th year teaching in the public school system. After a few years in Idaho, my family and I recently moved back to the Lone Star state. I have four children; three grown daughters who live in the DFW area and a son who is a sophmore in high school here in Tyler.
I have a bachelor’s in Interdisciplinary Studies and a master’s in Curriculum and Instruction.
My passions include reading, continued education, hiking and the mountains. Family is my first priority and you and your child are now a part of my family.
I will be on your campus this year, Monday- Wednesday, and I am thrilled to get to be a part of Rice Elementary school!
2019-2020 will be a great year!
