My name is Hannah Gaines, and I am the 5th grade Langugae Arts teacher here at Shields Elementary. I started teaching at Shields in March of 2017. 

Most of my life I grew up in Missouri. When I graduated high school I decided to head to Texas to begin my college education. I loved Texas so much that I decided not to leave. I graduated from Dallas Baptist University in May 2015 with a Bachelor of Science in Early-Childhood Education. It is my passion and I could not imagine doing anything else. I married my husband in 2014, and we have one daughter and a son on the way. We love to be outside, try out new restaurants, and have family movie nights. My family means the world to me!

I have many goals for my students this year. I hope to build leaders in my classroom that will continue with them as they grow and mature to be adults. We will strive to always be kind and respectful, and build each other up. I know we will have a great year ahead!
