Mrs. Mays

Welcome to 4th grade!


School Year 2019-2020 will be my 2nd year at Sugarland Elementary and my 11th year of teaching!  I live in Leesburg with my husband and 4 year old son, Daniel. We are expecting another son in November this year!  I am originally from Rochester, NY and I've been living here in Virginia for 14 years.  When I'm not at school, I enjoy watching movies, reading, checking out new restaurants and crafting.  I collect postcards and I have over 300 of them from all around the world!


I went to college in both Connecticut and Colorado for my Bachelor's Degree in Pyschology.  Afterwards, I got my Masters Degree in Virginia in Forensic Psychology. After working for a few years with law firms, I decided that I wanted to become a teacher.  I worked with the New Teacher Project in Maryland and in 2008 I became a licensed Special Education Teacher.  I worked in Maryland as a Special Educator for 4 years.  Then I worked in Washington, DC for 5 years teaching 1st, 4th and 5th grade. 


I really love working with students and families to make education relevant and fun!
