About me

Growing Up

Hey ya'll! My name is Brooke Carnline, the owner and founder of Teach Over the Rainbow. I wanted to share a little bit about myself. Thanks so much for following along my wild yet rewarding life as a elementary school teacher. I grew up in Maine spending much of my life playing sports and being active outside. After graduating high school, I followed in the footsteps of many of my family members and joined the Unites States Army. After proudly serving my country as a 91B (Combat Medical Specialist) and after being stationed in Texas on more than one occasion, I decided to settled down and call Texas my new home. This is where I've been for nearly 20 years raising my three amazing children: Bronwyn (20), Trayen (18), and Sadie (16).

Educational Background


Having three young children and going to college seemed to take me what felt like a decade to accomplish. But I finally did it! (Don't give up! Slow and steady wins the race!) I received my Associates Degree from Lee College, my Bachelors Degree from Stephen F. Austin State University (Axe' Em Jacks!), and later went on to get my Masters Degree in Teacher Leadership from Lamar University. 

Life and Hobbies

In 2019, I got married! We had the most magical wedding day I could have ever dreamed of. My relationship with my husband Aaron can only be described as one that's something out of a comedy movie. We both compliment each other so well and our goofy personalities keep us laughing and smiling every single day. In my spare time, I love crafting, organizing, cleaning, and spending time out side. My top favorite hobby is decorating!  Whether it is creating a neat space in a classroom for myself or someone else, or redesigning a space within my home. Designing and decorating allows my creativity to flow and my mind to relax. I'm constantly changing things up in my classroom and at home; doing so keeps things fresh and inviting!
