Cray Mahalia Francis
B.A. in Psychology, Middlebury College; M.S. in Childhood Education, Mercy College. Cray’s background in child psychology has lent itself to her current role as an elementary educator. Recently, she was nominated to serve her grade as the Third-Grade Literacy Leader; she is responsible for maintaining collaborative efforts among her colleagues, and for providing feedback from conferences. Her interest in educational leadership stems from the belief that education is the responsibility of family, community, and the school in which a child attends.
