Mrs. Ray, Principal

  • I am so excited to be given the opportunity to serve as the Saks Elementary principal!  My husband, LP, and I have two children, Gracie who is sixteen and Coleman who is eleven.  They both keep us busy with cheerleading, baseball and basketball. :)

    I have worked in the Calhoun County School System for the past 14 years.  Initially, I taught 3rd and 5th grades at White Plains Elementary and Middle Schools.  I then started my administration experience as Assistant Principal at Weaver Elementary and a short time at Alexandria Elementary. I began as principal at Saks Elementary in 2016 and it's SO GREAT to be a Saks Wildcat!

    My goal is to serve as support to our teachers and parents as we work together in helping our children to become successful lifelong learners!  I look forward to an awesome year ahead!  Thank you for sharing your children with us!

    I attended college at JSU where I graduated with an Educational Specialist Degree in Administration. My hobbies include camping, shopping, and spending quality time with my family.
