Ms. Malikha Gayles

Hello! I am Ms. Gayles one of the Kindergarten teachers here at Royal Oaks School of the Arts. I am so grateful for the opportunity to help children begin their education journey! ROSA is an amazing place where learning is fun and filled with Arts Integration.

I am from the Washington DC/Maryland area but have been in North Carolina since 2014. I have an amazing son named Ryan that I love and adore. In my sparetime I love to sing, watch superhero movies and play with my son. 

I was a pre-k teacher for 19 years, before transitioning to Kindergarten in 2019.  I am overjoyed to learn new and exciting ways to teach children. I can't wait to meet you and begin this learning journey together! We are going to have so much fun learning, reading, singing, counting, creating, dancing and getting to know each other. I am looking forward to an amazing year of new adventures which will result in the academic, social and overall growth of your child. Please reach out if you have any questions. GO ROCKETS!!
