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! 

As we enter the 2021-22 school year, it will by my ninth year teaching at KMS. I will be teaching 7th and 8th grade Read 180 and 7th grade ELA Advanced classes. 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 looking forward to being your teacher this year!  

I offer tutoring for students on Monday afternoons from 3:10-4:00. Please contact me if you'd wish to schedule an appointment.
