Ms. Malikha Gayles

I am so excitesd to be apart of the Royal Oaks Elementary School of the Arts family. 

I am from Washingto DC but have been in North Carolina for 5 years. I have an amazing son that I love and adore. I love to sing and play with my 2 kittens in my sparetime. 

I was a pre-k teacher for 19 years. I welcome the challenge of moving to Kindergarten and am overjoyed to learn new and exciting ways to teach children.
