Mr. Mays

JH Science

I am the Jr. High Science and Social Studies teacher.  I have only taught at Wayne City so I bleed WC Red!  I went to Eastern Illinois University.  I majored in middle level education in science and social studies.  My favorite color is blue.  My favorite animals are the ones I can eat!  I love to teach all of my classes.  I like it when the students learn something new and are truly excited about fresh knowledge.  I don't like all of the politics that get in the way and force me to do non-important programs and paper work... SERIOUSLY!!!  I have been teaching for 13 years.  I have an obsession with rocks.  I enjoy family most, but rocks come in second.  My favorite number is 8 because it reminds me of my favorite animal.  I like to go arrowhead hunting on rainy days!  On breaks from school, I like to hunt arrowheads...duh!  I am age 25+14.  I decided to become a teacher because I was encouraged by a few former teachers:  Lanny Smith, Danny Smith, and Stan Blank.  If I could do anything else, I would love to play major league baseball or be an archaeologist.  All of the random facts about me are TOP SECRET!!!  If I were stuck on a deserted island with a fellow teacher, I would pick Mr. Griswold because I could feed him poisonous berries and he would never know.  I would also want to have Mrs. Mays with me!  :)  The slogan that best describes me is, "OCD BABY!"  If I could be an animal I would be a sea cucumber because nobody wants to eat one!
