Welcome ESE! My name is Darla Raile. I am originally from St. Francis, KS. I attended FHSU for my undergraduate work, before taking my first teaching position in Salina. While in Salina, I taught Kindergarten, 1st grade, 3rd Grade, and Title 1. During this time, I earned 2 Master's degrees from Baker University; MA in Education and MS in Building Leadership. I then ventured back to St. Francis to teach 4th grade and 5th/6th ELA for one year before becoming the K-5 principal. I was principal in St. Francis for 6 years, before coming back to the Salina area. I am very grateful to have been given the opportunity to lead Ell-Saline Elementary. This is my 2nd year at ESE. I look forward to continuing to build excellence in our building and district. Go Cardinals!
