Paula Rainey

First Grade Teacher


I am excited to be at GCES!  I am looking forward to a great year.  Our parent-teacher relationship is very important to your child’s success. I believe that if we work together then your child will receive the most out of 1st grade Thank you for entrusting them to me for this short time.  I look forward to getting to know each of you better as the year progresses. 

A little about me… I have a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Early Childhood Education from Grand Canyon University. This will be my first year teaching. I am happily married with a wonderful husband named Kris who is also a teacher/coach and we have three precious boys: Hunter who is 22 years old, Trace who is 19 years old, and Brodie who is 13 years old. We also have a 3 spoiled doggies named Dallas, Daisy, and Rock. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and going to the lake or beach.

Once again, I am so excited to have your child! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me! I am here for you and your child. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at the school at (334) 588-2923 or email me at
