• Wedding

         Welcome! My name is Stephanie May and this will be my 19th year of teaching.  I attended Washington County Schools as a child.  I have a Master's Degree in Teaching from East Tennessee State University.  

    I am married to Scott May and we live in Johnson City.  I talk a lot about my 14-year-old tabby cat, Mad Max.  He is a very "wild" child.  I keep pictures of him around my classroom.  He keeps me busy chasing him and cleaning up his messes.  I often start the class day with a "Max Story".   I also have a 9-year-old cat named Sassy.  She has a lot of energy! My newest addition is a 7-year-old cat named Midnight!  She is an amazing hunter.  You will hear a lot about all of my "fur babies".

         I enjoy teaching and consider my class as my extended family.  I believe that learning should be fun as well as informative.  By using brain-based strategies, I keep the students engaged and excited in their learning.  My goal for the school year is to provide students with the chance to learn and be successful in a safe and engaging environment.
