Mr. Joe Ray


 Mr. Ray here. I am entering my 19th year of teaching and am excited about what is in store for the school year. In addition to teaching, I also do some acting and will be performing in Disney's Newsies in September. I have been on several television commercials and am a part of several projects that will be shown in the future.

 I have been married 20 years, have 3 dogs, and enjoy sports, outdoor activities, puzzles, games, almost anything competitive-GO NOLES!!. As an educator, I have taught kindergarden, middle school, and 12 years of high school, 8 at Forest. The success of others is my passion and I hope to challenge my students enough to drive them to succeed. 

I'm usually available for assistance and will do my very best to help my students learn and apply the concepts placed before them. 

Let's make this a great school year!
