Ms. Kaitlyn Rini
Hello, my name is Ms. Rini. I am originally from Riverside, California, but I moved to Arizona 7 years ago. I attended Northern Arizona University, two times, to receive my BA and M.Ed. This will be my third year teaching at IRHS. I truly believe teaching is my calling, and I love being in the classroom with all of my students. In my free time, I like to coach the pomline and dance, be creative and crafty, and walk my yellow lab, Chase. I can't wait to get to know you!
My defining moment in education was in my senior year of high school. I was never the best student, but senior year I had a teacher that just had a way of making me realize that I wanted to be a great student. This same teacher was the club sponsor for Best Buddies, a club that worked with special education students. This is where I realized that I wanted to become a special education teacher. I believe that every student can succeed if they are given the tools and opportunities to. I can't wait to help you reach your full potential as well!
