After four years at the original KIPP Academy in Houston as a 5th grade history teacher and grade-level chair, Gaines decided to pursue an MBA and M.ED at UVA.

Upon returning stateside, Rafe cofounded a fundraising software company and a tutoring small business, worked for two other startups, and played semi-professional Ultimate Frisbee.
