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 second year teaching at IRHS. This school year may not be what we expected, but I am going to try my best to make it the absolute best for you! I truly believe teaching is my calling, and I love being in the classroom with all of my students (we will get there eventually!). 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!
