Mr. Steven Ray

I am from a small town in Indiana.  The town I grew up in had one stop light and every adult was my parent.  I graduated from Franklin Central High School and attended Lincoln Technical Institute, graduating as a Diesel Mechanic.  Shortly thereafter I joined the U.S. Army.  I worked as a Cannon Crewman, Administrative Clerk, then an Imagery Analyst in Military Intelligence, retiring after 20 years.  After retiring, I attended Central Florida College and the University of Florida where I graduated with a Mathematics degree. 

I started my teaching career at Silver River Mentoring and Instruction in Ocala.  I then moved to Vanguard High School.  After Vanguard I entered the private sector for a few years, owning and running my own business.  Since I missed teaching, I returned to it at Cedar Key High School.  I was there for two years then moved back to Marion County and Francis Marion Military Academy.  I joined MTI in January of 2015.  I believe in the mission of MTI and absolutely love the format and goals of the school.  I would have fought to attend here if it were available during my High School days. 

I teach Math for College Readiness.  I consider it a privilege that the parents and the school system allow me to teach your children! Please feel free to contact me at any time.
