Hi! Welcome to kindergarten!  My name is Gwendolyn Mitchell and I am excited to be your child's teacher this year.  . New experiences and friends will make this year a special time for you and your child. 

I received my undergraduate degree  in Early Childhood Education from Valdosta State University in Georgia.  Graduate degrees consists of Master's in Early Childhood from Auburn University in Montgomery and AA certification from Alabama A & M University.  I am beginning my 28th year as a kindergarten  teacher. 

I am looking forward to working with and helping your child to achieve his/her full potential.  I am always available to you whenever you have questions or concerns.  I consider it a priviledge to teach your child this year.

I love teaching Kindergarten!  I am beginning my 28th year as a kindergarten teacher at Rainbow Elementary School.  I have been teaching kindergarten since 1985, where I began at Wetumpka Elementary School.  After moving to Huntsville, I taught kindergarten for 12 years at West Madison Elementary, transferred to Heritage Elementary for 2 years and I am now excited to be teaching at Rainbow for the past 10 years.


I was born and raised in Waycross, Georgia.  I am married to my husband of 28 years and have 3 boys Julian, Jared and Johnathan.  Jared and Johnathan, twins,  are embarking on a new experience entering different colleges this fall. They will play division one soccer at their respective colleges. Julian is a senior electrical engineering major at UAB.  I enjoy reading, decorating, planting and traveling.
