About Me

My name is Tracey Raines (a.k.a Coach B). I was born in Philadelphia, Pa; yes I  am a yankee. I moved to Alabama when I was 13, so some people consider me southern because I have lived more than half my life down South. Then I moved to Cleveland, MS and lived there for four years. Then I moved back home (Tuscaloosa); it is funny how you want to get away from home but you always end up back at home I have a son named Owen.  Remember love what you do and do what you love.......

Mission Statement

My mission statement is to teach with a Christ-like attitude in a Christ-like environment. I want to help my students better understand the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of their lives, and help them become better students and, more importantly, become a better person.
