     Hello!  My name is Mrs. Rauss and I am a fourth grade teacher at Hanrahan Elementary School in Jennings, Missouri.  I have a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Education and a Master's Degree in Multidisciplinary Studies.  I have been teaching for twenty-four years in the Jennings School District.  The first twenty years I taught at Northview Elementary.  Upon completion of my 20th year of teaching in one building, I felt a desire for change.  Therefore, I transferred over to Hanrahan Elementary and that is where I plan to stay for the remainder of my teaching career.
