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 food. I absolutely love anything Star Wars! May the force be with you.
This is my sixth year teaching 8th grade South Carolina history at Kennedy Middle School. This year, I will also be teaching 8th grade S.C. History 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 also KMS's yearbook advisor, working alongside the fabulous Ms. Hawley! I also serve on two leadership teams within KMS.
I love teaching Social Studies and I look forward to teaching your student!
