Ms. Sara Mayes

Hello!  My name is Sara Mayes and I'm excited to be back with the Wolfpack this year!  I am from Kings Mountain, North Carolina, where I currently live on the farm that I grew up on.  I have my BA in Special Education from Appalachian State University (Roll 'Neers!) and am currently working towards my MA in Special Education with a concentration in Specific Learning Disabilities from Appalachian State University, which will include Graduate Certificates in Autism Spectrum Disorders and Reading Education.

I love the small family farming lifestyle.  Currently, we raise beef cattle and chickens.  Each summer, we have a garden with lots of produce, and we also raise and sell hay for livestock feed.  We also provide firewood and lumber through our sawmill.  Aside from living and working on my family's farm, I love baking (brownies and homemade cakes are my favorites!), singing and listening to music (acapella is a favorite for both of these), and reading (historical fiction is my favorite!), and am particularly active in the church that I grew up in, where I teach Sunday school and work with the youth group.


My office hours are during my planning period, 3rd period: 11:10 AM - 1:15 PM.  I can be reached through my email at any time, and if you need additional help with anything, please reach out through email and I'd be happy to set up a time to work with you.


In the event of bad weather or remote learning, I can be reached by email:
