Hi! My name is Mrs. Vivian May and I am SO excited to be a part of the freshmen team! I was born in Dallas, Texas and the oldest of FIVE! I have two younger sisters, Savannah and Rachel, and two younger brothers, Bradley and Cody. I LOVE them! I have lived in many parts of the United States, but did attend West Marion Elementary in the 4th and 5th grade. When I graduated high school I moved to Louisville to attend the University of Louisville where I majored in Elementary Education with a Concentration in English and Oral Communications (shew… a mouth full!) A couple years later I attended University of the Cumberlands where I received my Masters in Arts of Education in Reading/Writing Specialist.
I taught my first year at Taylorsville Elementary for 5th grade reading. That year was very exciting because I won the Kentucky Association of Teacher Educators (KATE) Award, and then went on to win the Southeastern Regional Association of Teacher Educators. I was really shocked and honored to be rewarded for something that I just love doing! I then decided to move closer to home and was hired at Calvary Elementary where I taught 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th Grade! I always dreamed of teaching the older kids so last year I thought I would go for it and try Freshmen English at the Marion County Knight Academy. This will be my ninth year teaching and I am excited to teach the "bigger" kids!!
I am married to an awesome man, named Michael! I love to eat home cooked meals, which my grandmother makes the best, but I don’t like to cook them (I think that gene skipped me…) I love University of Kentucky sports and will talk to anybody about starting line ups and games! Last but not least, and my two favorite things, I have another boy who has stolen my heart and that is my 6 year old named Jax and my baby girl, who is 4, named Olivia. Olivia loves to play with baby dolls, LOVES food, and her big brother. Jax has become such a character and I just love playing cars, chase, or ball with him. My husband already has plans of him playing basketball for the University of Kentucky! We also have a dog, who is a goldendoodle, named Cali! She is the size of a miniture horse but thinks she is a lap dog!!
I am so excited to be your teacher and for you to be part of this AWESOME class!!
