I am so thrilled to be a part of the Mays Rays family! I am excited to serve alongside the excellent staff of Mays Elementary and support students in any way I can. I firmly believe that every child can and will learn and that each child brings gifts and talents to their relationships, including the classroom. My role is to support students socially, emotionally, and academically. As a "Leader in Me" school, I can't wait to see our students and staff blossom into the leaders they can be! I am truly looking forward to building relationships with students, parents, teachers, and staff as we embark on this adventure that awaits us this year!
