I am Tenise Rayburn. I was born and raised in McDowell County and now have the pleasure of working at the elementary school that I attended as a child. I graduated from McDowell High School in 2004. I then went on to attend McDowell Tech and Mars Hill University. I began working at Marion Elementary as an after school director in 2008. Since then I have worked at Pleasant Gardens and West Marion Elementary as a teacher assistant. I am currently an Exceptional Children's teacher. I enjoy teaching students how become better readers and believe in helping every student reach his fullest potential. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my son & daughter and the rest of our crazy family. When I'm not at work or spending time with my family, you can often find me at Mt. Moriah, where my sweet daddy is the pastor. Between my coworkers, friends, family and church family, I am fortunate in feeling that I am among some of the best people in the world.
