  • Dear Rann Family:
    I am excited to continue to serve the phenomenal team at Rann Elementary in a new capacity. I am blessed and humbled to have been selected as your principal. This year, I will enter my 12th year in education and my fourth year with Decatur ISD. I have enjoyed the last two years serving as assistant principal here at Rann, and prior to that I spent two years as the Secondary Mathematics Instructional Specialist. I spent my first 7 years in education as a Mathematics teacher at Northwest High School. I hold a Bachelor's Degree from Tarleton State University in Mathematics and a Master's Degree also from Tarleton State University in Educational Leadership. 
    Personally, I am married to a wonderful husband and together we have a sweet 10 month old daughter, a fun-loving two year old son, and a 7 year old rescue dog. In my "spare" time I enjoy spending time with family and friends.
    Here at Rann, our number one mission is to do what's best for kids - academically, socially, and emotionally. We encourage our parents and community to join us in various activities throughout the year. I look forward to serving as a resource for students, parents, and faculty. If you have any questions or concerns please contact me at the following: 940-393-7604 or 
    I look forward to the first of many fantastic years serving as Principal at Rann Elementary!
    With Eagle Pride,
    Kaci Cook
