Rachel Corbin Bio
Having finished my fourth year here as your assistant principal, I am so fortunate to truly feel RJE as my second home. I grew up in Chicago, which I visit multiple times a year since most of my immediate family still live there. However, having secured my Zoology undergraduate degree and my post-graduate education degrees in Ohio, while also spending the first 11 years of my teaching career near Cleveland, I do refer to myself as a die-hard Buckeye. My husband and I relocated to the Lonestar State about 12 years ago, and we have absolutely loved being in the heart of Texas. I spent my first eight years in the DFW area gaining education experience in Richardson ISD, where I earned two of my proudest achievements as an educator, being recognized as an RISD Teacher 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, playing and watching sports (but mostly football–go Buckeyes!), traveling and exploring new places, and spending quality time with family and friends. As evident with my Zoology degree, I have an affection for animals and enjoy combining that passion with my love for helping those less fortunate. I am an active volunteer with the outreach team of Duck Team Street Dog Rescue, where we help local deserving Dallas residents who are struggling by providing adequate care and resources for their beloved pets. My husband, Steve, and I recently moved to the historic downtown McKinney with our two dogs and two cats. We share a love of visiting with friends and family, watching movies, trying new restaurants, and traveling together, especially since the bulk of our families live in the Chicago and Ohio areas.
It is such an honor to continue my passions as a Johnson Jaguar with McKinney ISD!
