Connie Rader
Kindergarten Teacher

Courses Taught:



Welcome to Mrs. Connie's class.  I have been teaching at PKS for 26 years and have loved every minute of it.  It is my heart's desire for my class to be an educational experience that children will not soon forget.  We are so blessed at PKS to have a loving and devoted staff that goes above and beyond each day's call of duty.  

I'm married to my wonderful husband, Mark Rader. I am the lucky and proud mother of my beautiful daughter, Riley Anne, who attends Prattville High School.  She is a gifted dancer at Mann Dance Studio. She keeps me very busy at dance competitions across the Southeast. I also have two furry "dogters" who fill my life with endless mischief and fun.  I am a graduate of the University of Montevallo and have a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Ed. from Alabama State University.
