Mrs. Jennifer "Candice" Ray
Hi! My name is Jennifer "Candice" Ray and I am a fifth grade math and science teacher here at Hawks Rise Elementary. Before we begin our year together, allow me to introduce myself and share some things about me.
I grew up in Tallahasssee where I attended Gilchrist, Raa and Leon. I attended Florida Southern College in Lakeland, FL. I interned in Winter Haven and taught third grade for three years before transferring to Orlando. In Orlando, I taught third, fourth, and fifth grades at NorthLake Park Community School. After starting a family, I relocated back to Tallahassee in 2007. I have been teaching at Hawks Rise ever since. This is my 18th year of teaching!
My husband and I have three children, Cassandra(26), Callie(5), and Parker(13).
I can't wait to meet you!
