Christine Rains

Welcome to Ms. Rains's Web Page 

Whale hello there! We're happy to sea you!

Please allow me to introduce myself! 

My name is Crissy Rains and I am a Special Education Teacher working with social, emotional and behavioral students at Frankfort Intermediate School, for third through sixth grade.  This is my twenty fourth year in education, as well as my specialty field and I love it more now than the day I began this journey!  I have had the pleasure of working with students from Kindergarten through Senior level and feel this has aided in expanding my knowledge in this fascinating and critical field of work. 

    As well as teaching in District #168, I have made my home in West Frankfort.  I have two beautiful daughters that are my pride and joy.  Daily, they remind me that I am not just the teacher, but the student as well, as I continue to learn so much in their maturation and growth. 

Prior to moving to West Frankfort, I grew up and proudly lived as a Wildcat in Marion, Illinois.  I surrendered the blue and gold and now display red, gray and white with pride for our beloved Redbirds. I am the coach for the FCHS Cheerleaders and love working with this exceptional group. 

Throughout the school year, I encourage you to visit my web page to keep abreast of new and upcoming events for your child and our community. 

We are quickly approaching the end of the school year, with fourth quarter well underway.  My, oh my, how time flies when you're learning and having fun!  PARCC testing is coming to a close and Spring has officially sprung!  
With the end of the school year coming, please be attentive to paperwork that is coming home, each day.  We will be making plans for end of the year events and wouldn't want your child to miss out on these wonderful opportunities.  
Listed below you will find some very important dates that you will want to become acquainted with right away.  If ever you have questions,
just jot me a note or give me a buzz at the school. I can be reached at 937-1412 or at my email address

Happy Spring and enjoy your Spring Break!!!!
