JoAnne Garay

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! 

I am proud and excited to be serving all Cabarrus County High Schools this school year. My passion is secondary education and supporting our adolescents from a whole child perspective to foster academic, behavioral, and social-emtoional success. Working with teaming structures, staff, students, and families, I am eager to build many new relationships and connections 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. I have been a school psychologist in North Carolina for ten years. While completing my undergraduate and graduate degrees, I worked in state and therpeutic 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, supporting the local YMCA, cooking, trying new restaurants, and traveling to visit family in the mountains of West Virginia and Virginia, and in Western New York.
