After graduation, Bain attended Texas A&M University – College Station, where she was on the dean’s and distinguished student’s lists while enrolled in the TAMU Honors program.

She returned to her hometown and became a substitute teacher in the Fruitvale and Grand Saline school districts, before being offered a permanent position at Fruitvale ISD. After a semester as a second grade teacher at Hallie Randall Elementary, Bain was offered the junior high/high school science position and she began teaching and coaching Fruitvale Junior High and high School.
