Mrs. Gainer

Hello my name is Mrs. Gainer.  I am excited about teaching at Kate Sullivan.  I graduated from the "Florida State University" where I received my Bachelor's degree in Dietetics.  I worked as a Nutrition Educator for 6 years before becoming certified as an ESE Teacher (Exceptional Student Education).  A year later I became certified as an Elementary Education Teacher (K-6). It has been gratifying having the opportunity to teach various grade levels and subject areas (2nd, 4th and 5th) and now 3rd grade.  I have taught students Reading, Writing and Math throughout my career.  Teaching is my passion and I believe in a learning environment that is conducive for all students to learn.  I am married with 3 beautiful children that always keep me laughing and makes me so proud!

When I am not teaching, I love to spend time with my family.  My favorite activities are attending my boys football games, my daughter's softball games and visiting my home town, St. Petersburg, FL.  Being certified in both ESE and K-6 has given me the experience to work with all types of students on all levels.  Teaching is very self motivating and rewarding.  I absolutely love what I do!!  Go Noles!!
