Rachel Corbin Bio
I can’t express how excited I am to be with the Jaguar Family as your assistant principal! Just a little bit about myself, I grew up in Chicago, where most of my immediate family still lives. I graduated from Miami University (of Ohio) with a Zoology degree, and then moved to the Cleveland area where I attained my Masters in Elementary Education. I started my education career as a third grade teacher just outside Cleveland in a small lakeside community called Bay Village. A few years thereafter, I received my certification in Elementary and Middle School Administration from Cleveland State University. Then, after almost 17 years of living in the Buckeye State, my husband was relocated to the Dallas area in 2009, and so I picked up and continued my teaching career as a third grade teacher right here in the Dallas area for Richardson ISD. A couple years later, I was promoted to assistant principal and have spent the last few years as assistant principal in RISD. I have always been a very active and committed educator, and I believe the best representation of how much I am dedicated to education is being recognized as one of RISD’s Teachers of the Year in 2012 and then as the RISD Assistant Principal of the Year in 2015. Teaching and learning will always be a part of my heart!
When I’m not working, I enjoy going to morning boot camp regularly, spending time playing and watching all kinds of sports (but mostly football–go Buckeyes!), reading books, and spending quality time with family and friends. As evident with my Zoology degree, I do also have a soft spot for animals, so I enjoy volunteering with and fostering animals for local animal rescues. My husband, Steve, and I have been married for almost 12 years and, although we do not have any kids, we do have two dogs and two cats. My husband and I live in the North Dallas area, and we love visiting with friends and family, going to movies, trying new restaurants, and traveling especially since the bulk of our families live in the Chicago and Ohio areas.
Again, I am so honored to be continuing my passions with McKinney ISD and with the Johnson Elementary family!
