Education

I have received three college degrees, all from University of North Georgia.  My first degree was a BS degree in Chemistry with minors in Biology and Mathematics.  After working in the chemistry field for two years, I returned to UNG to obtain my MEd in Secondary Science.  Finally, I  received my EdS degree in Leadership in 2004. 



Experience

I began teaching in 1998.  I taught Mathematics, everything from Algebra to Calculus at Hidden Lake Academy in Dahlonega.  The next year I was offered a position at Dawson County High School and a position at White County High School.  I accepted White County's offer.  Since teaching in White Co., I have taught various subjects including physical science, physics, microbiology, and SAT Prep Math.  I have been teaching physical science at the NGA since the school was started in 2004-2005.  I feel very blessed to be a part of this great system.



Bio

I love science and teaching, but am also very busy with my family and church.  I married Tim Mayo in 1996, we have 2 children, Jessalyn (born in 2001), and Kyler (born in 2005).  Tim also teaches science at the Middle School.  We attend Helen First Baptist Church where Tim and I both work in the children's ministry.   We also enjoy sports, Jessalyn is a competitive gymnast and Kyler competes in travel baseball and also does gymnastics.  In our free time, my husband and I also enjoy riding our road bikes and running.
