Rana Raughton's nominator would like to remain anonymous.
For many years, Mrs. Raughton has taught math and/or science to fourth grade students. She has a natural talent for teaching that reaches students who have struggled in the past. She is very organized and ready to give her students her all as soon as the day begins.
Over the years, Mrs. Raughton has proven her teaching talent over and over. No matter what level students are at when they enter her classroom, the majority meet proficient or distinguished by the end of the year. She develops fun relationships with her students which last for years after they leave fourth grade. She is serious about the curriculum she is challenged to teach, but she finds many different ways to make it fun, competitive and engaging for her students.
Mrs. Raughton is a LifeChanger because her teaching talent reaches children who struggle and helps them close the gaps in their misunderstanding. Students who had not succeeded before begin to feel the pride of success after being in her room.
"We are very blessed to have her teach our students at Bowdon Elementary," said her nominator. "She is a teacher who positively changes the lives of those she teaches!"
