Ms. Carolyn Reiner taught chemistry and environmental science for Richmond County Public Schools for ten years before coming to the Governor’s School. At Rappahannock High School, she coached a one-act competition theater team and worked with students to write original playscripts. She hosted a STEAM Team where students created solar powered creations out of reusable materials and solar panels. Ms. Reiner is currently pursuing a degree in Scientific Glassblowing through Salem Community College in New Jersey and has dreams to one day sculpt glassware for NASA researchers. If she’s not gardening in her backyard or jogging through town, Ms. Reiner can usually be found ankle deep in vernal pools looking for salamander eggs or chasing around her energetic toddler.
