Welcome to L.H. Rather Junior High School...where our purpose is to EMPOWER students. It is an honor and privilege to serve as the Principal of L.H. Rather.
This is my fourth year with BISD. Prior to becoming the LHR Principal in 2016, I was the Assistant Principal at L.H. Rather for one year and the Assistant Principal at I.W. Evans for one year. I came to Bonham ISD from Van Alstyne ISD, where I served as a teacher for fourteen years and an administrative intern for two years.
I grew up along the Texas coast and attended school in Bay City, Texas. I received my Bachelor’s Degree from Texas State University and my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Lamar University.
My husband, Kenneth, and I have four children. Justin graduated from Texas A&M and is a First Lieutenant in the US Army. Emily is pursuing a degree in Elementary and Special Education at Southeastern Oklahoma State University. Jonathan attends the University of Texas at Dallas and studies Computer Information Systems. John-Michael is a sophomore Business major at Sam Houston State University. I enjoy spending time at the beach or on the lake with my family. I also enjoy camping and getting lost in a good book.
I have a passion for impacting kids in a positive way and supporting them in attaining their life goals and aspirations. I look forward to leading a campus that provides meaningful, engaging learning experiences for our students so they are prepared to become tomorrow’s leaders. Together we will work diligently to help L.H. Rather Junior High School reach new heights. I look forward to another outstanding school year.
It's a great time to be a Rather Indian!
