Ms. Vanessa May

Fifth Grade

Greetings to you.  My name is Ms. Vanessa May.  I am excited to teach and make friends in 1st grade this year.  I am eager to be part of the Excelsior family.  I taught at a part-time classical charter school in Southern California and I went in search for a full-time classical school for my children and found Excelsior.  I was hooked at the first, "Get Ready".  

I am a California native and I have two beautiful young children.  We love the outdoors, running around on an open field, playing in the sand, playing ball, whale watching, and anything new and fun.  My parents are from the Kingdom of Tonga.  I had the privilege of visiting the islands a few times, a couple times with my kids who view it like anything else: their backyard.  Utah is now that for us and we love it here, mostly because of Excelsior.
