MS. L. RAY
♥Welcome to the home of the mighty, mighty JAGUARS! As a student at Madison Central, you have the potential to have a year filled with many exciting events, personal achievements, and maybe even a few pleasant, unexpected surprises along the way. As your teacher, I look forward to seeing you prosper in all realms of the school environment-whether it is academics, athletics, music, performance, or personal growth - we will embark on this incredible journey together and delight in the victories, both big and small.
♥I'm a graduate of Mississippi College in Clinton, MS. I began teaching in 1992, but my first year at Madison Central was 1993! (I'm really old!) Through the years, I've had the opportunity to teach at many amazing schools where I've met tons of wonderful people. During my career, I've taught Psychology, Academic Decathlon, ACT PREP, Special Education, Advanced Placement Literature, Creative Writing, all levels of English, and Spanish. I've sponsored the Softball Team, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Cheerleaders, Dance Team, Yearbook, and Students Against Dangerous Decisions. In fact, I was a co-sponsor of the very first dance team right here at Madison Central, AND I was the sponsor of the very first S.A.D.D. chapter at MC.
