About Mrs. Rankey:
Hello, Welcome to my classroom website. I am currently teaching 4th grade at Washington Elementary. I have taught 6th, 7th and 9th grade math/science.
I am a graduate of Bay City Western High School and from there followed my dream to attend Central Michigan University to become a teacher. After a few years of teaching, I went on to get my masters at Saginaw Valley University in 2005. I attend many math and science professional developments to continue to add to my box of tools for teaching kids new concepts in fun and exciting ways.
I have a wonderful and energetic family. I am married to Nate and have 2 boys- Aiden and Brady. My boys have taught me to take time and enjoy the little things in life. As well as, have a good time doing whatever you are doing.
Mission For The Class:
My goal is to provide meaningful learning experiences for my students. I strive to challenge my students to think and create in different ways. I encourage them to stretch themselves and to strive to do the best they can. We will explore our curriculum in many ways and it is my hope that my students develop the desire and skills to be lifelong learners.
