JoAnne Garay

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! 

I am proud and excited to continue serving high schools in Cabarrus county, and this school year will be assigned to Concord High, J.M. Robinson High, Northwest Cabarrus High, and West Cabarrus High. I will also support the Performance Learning Center, Early College Technology campus, and Cabarrus Virtual Academy. My passion is secondary education to support our adolescents from a whole child perspective to foster academic, behavioral, and social-emtoional success. I look forward to our work together this year! 

I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Canisius College of Buffalo, and my Masters of Science with Certificate of Advanced Study in School Psychology from Niagara University. This will be my 12th year as a school psychologist in North Carolina. While completing my undergraduate and graduate degrees, I worked in state and therapeutic hospital settings in New York serving adults with developmental disabilities and children with behavioral and social-emotional disabilities.

I grew up in Buffalo, NY (Go Bills!) In my time outside of education, my family and I enjoy being active with runs and walks in local parks, traveling to the coast and mountains of NC, cooking, trying new restaurants, and visiting family in the mountains of West Virginia and Virginia, and in Western New York.
