Mrs. Rakes


Hi!  My name is Kim Rakes.  I am the Adaptive Curriculum Teacher for grades 3-5 here at Lincoln Terrace Elementary.  I am a dog mom to 4 dogs (2 little and 2 big) a wife, an aunt, and a great aunt to 2 very handsome boys who own my heart.  I grew up in Franklin County, Va.   I graduated from Radford University in 1996 where I earned my bachelor's degree.  I am currently going into my 27th year teaching Special Education, 23 years have been within Roanoke City Schools.  I love my job because my students make me laugh and sometimes cry at the same time, they show me what true love is and they never stop working hard to reach their goals. They become a piece of my heart even as they move on to middle school.  
Each new school year brings its own adventure, and I am excited to be a part of your child's path to learning.
