I love being a teacher! What I enjoy most about teaching is developing a sense of community in our classroom where everyone feels they have a gift and something to contribute. I especially look forward to seeing students realize their potential, challenging themselves to go beyond prior achievement levels while discovering attributes such as leadership.
During my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, walking my dogs, writing, and riding horses. I have three children who are all adults now enjoying their own careers. Being a lover of animals, I am especially fond of dogs and horses. Currently, I have two Australian shepherds and an Arabian horse who both enjoy a lot of my free time. As we love to explore new and delicious food, Mr. May and I look forward to dining out and trying new restaurants, along with cooking for friends and family.
