Cain has taught at the elementary level for 21 years, 15 of which have been spent at CSISD. He is currently an art teacher at Greens Prairie Elementary, a position he has held for the past three years.
Cain has made contributions to both his school and his community. One of which is the Cabbage Corner Vegetable Garden at Rock Prairie Elementary, which, according to Cain, has produced more than three tons of fresh, organic produce to the Brazos Food Bank and other food pantries.
He was also named Campus Teacher of the Year for Rock Prairie Elementary in 2002.
“Teaching is never just a job, simply defined by the wall of a classroom, nor is it defined by a clock,” Cain said, “Wherever I taught, I always considered myself a teacher of all the children, not just the children in my own classroom.”
The CSISD Elementary Teacher of the Year recipient will be a nominee for the Region VI Teacher of the Year award.
