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.


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, biology and SAT Prep Math. I have been teaching physical science at the NGA since the school was started in 2004-2005. Along the way I added Biology. I feel very blessed to be a part of this great system.


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 teaches robotics 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.
