Ms. Whitney Ray

Hello! My name is Whitney Ray. I live in Aiken with my husband, William, and our energetic Yorkie named Scout. I enjoy reading, spending time with my family/friends, and photography. I also love cheering for the Carolina Gamecocks (and the Florida Gators for my husband!), watching movies, and trying new foods. I absolutely love llama decor and you will find it all over my classroom!

Happy Summer! I hope everyone has a relaxing and much deserved break this summer. I plan to rest, spend time with family/friends, and read (I have a whole list waiting on me!). I encourage you to keep reading this summer as well! 

As we enter the 2020-21 school year, it will by my eighth year teaching at KMS. This year, I will be transitioning to the 7th grade. I will be teaching 7th grade Read 180 and ELA classes (I will post my exact schedule closer to the beginning of the year). I am a graduate of the University of South Carolina Aiken with a Bachelors degree in Middle Level Education with concentrations in Social Studies and Language Arts. I earned the honor of representing the 2012-2013 USCA graduating class as the Outstanding Student in Middle Level Education. In 2014, I was awarded the honor of Kennedy Middle School's First Year Teacher of the Year and in 2018 I won Kennedy Middle School's Teacher of the Year. I am also KMS's yearbook advisor, working alongside the fabulous Ms. K. Anderson! 

I am looking forward to teaching your student this year!
