Mrs. Rainsford- 5B



My name is Alicia Rainsford. I teach science, social studies, ELA, and reading to fifth graders at this wonderful school. To me, learning is meant to be an adventure and a process rather than a task. I do all that I can to integrate movement, music, art, and games into the exploration process. I also do all that I can to assure that my classroom is one where the students and I offer each other mutual respect at all times. My favorite moments with students are those when I see their curiosities have been genuinely piqued. 

As background, I grew up in Columbia and brought my love for the Gamecocks with me to Charleston when I moved here in 2003. After going to Emory in Atlanta for undergrad and studying abroad in Australia then Prague, I got my MA in history and my MAT in elementary education. I adore being outside, exercising, and traveling to new places. My favorite traveling companions are my husband, Todd, and my two children, Benjamin and Juliette who share the walls of Belle Hall with me.

I feel so fortunate to be a part of the Belle Hall family. It is truly a gift to have a job where I get to watch children grow in maturity and knowledge everyday!
