Mrs. Kawanna Gardner

I am Kawanna Gardner, and I am thrilled to introduce myself as the new MAAP Administrator at Rainbow Elementary.  I am from Birmingham, Alabama.  I relocated to Huntsville in 2019 and have since settled in Harvest.  I love visiting and spending time with my family.  I enjoy traveling and seeing new places. I enjoy teaching and learning.

I have been blessed to marry my high school sweetheart, Kornelius.  We celebrated 22 years of marriage this year.  Together we have three beautiful children- KJ, Kaleb and Kristyn.  They all attend Madison City Schools.  

I have had the pleasure of being in education for 21 years.  I bring to Rainbow a rich and varied background in education. I’ve taught at a private school, worked at the state level at The Alabama Department of Early Childhood in Montgomery, taught in Birmingham City Schools and now Madison City Schools. Last year, I was the PreK STEM teacher for our district.   

I am very excited and ready to serve in this new position.  I’m looking forward to building relationships with students, teachers and parents.  I know that this will be an amazing school year. Go Rockets!
