Dean of Students
I graduated from Rains High School and attended East Texas State University
I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Eductation with a specialization in Reading
I attend workshops each year to enhance classroom learning.
I joined the Rains ISD family in 1992 as a fourth grade classroom teacher. After two years in fourth grade I transfered to second grade where I taught 22 years. I am starting my fourth year as the Dean of Students for the PreK-2 elementary campus.
My teaching career started at Wills Point ISD as a first grade teacher. After a year, I was blessed to be hired by Rains and I returned "home".
I am married to Rex Dickens and have 2 children, Hunter and Hannah. Hunter works for Texas Parks and Wildlife in Palestine, and Hannah is an ER nurse at UT Health in Tyler. We have always enjoyed camping and being outdoors.
