My name is Gianina Bailey, and I am so excited to be back at Carrollton Classical Academy! I taught 1st grade Language Arts and Social Studies for three years before having my first child. I have been at home with my son, Henry, and daughter, Hattie, for the past 7 years and feel so blessed to have the opportunity to return to RES and provide Dyslexia and 504 services this year. I married my amazing husband, Chris in 2008, and we live in Plano, TX. We are passionate about our faith and love to travel. He has even convinced me that I (occasionally) like to go camping! If I’m not with my husband or kiddos, you will probably find me reading a book, doing yoga, or teaching yoga. I grew up in San Antonio, Texas and graduated from Texas A&M University in 2003 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing. However, I didn’t discover my passion for education until I returned to school in 2007 and received my teaching certification from the University of Texas at Dallas.
