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 sixth year with BISD and my fourth year as Principal at LH Rather. Prior to becoming the LHR Principal, 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. I am currently enrolled in the University of Texas at Arlington's Educational Administration graduate program.
My husband, Kenneth, and I have four children. Justin graduated from Texas A&M University and is a Captain in the US Army. Emily graduated from Southeastern Oklahoma State University and is a fourth grade teacher in Van Alstyne ISD. Jonathan attended UT-Dallas and works for Gerogetown ISD as an IT technician. John-Michael is a senior Communications major at Texas Tech University. I enjoy spending time at the beach or on the lake with my family. I also enjoy 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!
