Welcome to Mrs. Rankin's 2nd Grade Classroom. I began my teaching career in 1985 in St. Louis, MO. I am married with one son. We've been in Memphis for 17 years. I love the outdoors, spending time with family, reading, and laughing. It's hard to believe, but this is my 31st year of teaching. I began teaching in the area of special education, ranging from children with severe and multiple handicaps to 8th grade resource English. I have also taught preschool, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade at Bartlett Elementary. I am excited about the 2015 - 2016 school year.
