Eden Raines

Mrs. Eden Raines 5th Grade Class

I am so excited to be teaching at The Anthony School for the fourth year this year. This will be my sixth year teaching English language arts. I love kids, and teaching is my true passion. I grew up and went to college in Fayetteville, but I've been in Little Rock since 2009. I got my Masters in Education for middle childhood in 2014 and absolutely love this age group.    My husband and I welcomed a son to our family June 30th 2016, and he always keeps us on our toes. Leo has changed our world, and we are excited that he'll be starting at the Anthony School this year. I have been playing the violin since I was four years old, I'm an avid reader, and enjoy playing tennis and traveling as much as I can. I'm honored to be a part of the Anthony School and look forward to being a part of you and your children's lives in a meaningful way.
