Mr. Tyree Mayo
Hello!! I am very happy to be welcomed into the Spartan Family. I will serve as the school's Test Coordinator. I will keep all our students, parents, administrators, and staff informed of all of our test plans and orgnization. Dates, policies, and procedures have always changed and with challenges that sometimes we may not be able to control I will do my best to address any concerns that may arise. Here, you will be able to find the latest dates and updates to our testing schedule. Any policies and procedure changes that I am able to communiate with the public will be avaible here too. I look forward to working with our students and staff this school year. Through our testing and with the help of all the educators, administrators, and staff in the building we hope to prepare our students for one of the four, "E's." Our hope upon their depoarture from here is to be on the path to be educated, employed, enlisted, or entrepreuership.
A little bit about myself. This will be my first year serving as Test Coordinator, after being in the classroom for the past 18 years. I began my career in education in Durham, North Carolina at Rogers-Herr Middle School, home of the Rams. There, I taught Exploring Technology and Career Decisions. During my time there, I served as an assistant baseball coach, assistant football coach, and an assistant girls basketball coach. I was also the head coach of the football team, head coach for boys and girls track & field, and the head coach for the boys basketball team. Easy to figure out I love education and sports, especially scholastic sports.
During my ninth year at Rogers-Herr I was invited to become the head junior varsity and an assistant basketball coach for Hillside High School in Durham. I accepted the offer and three months later I also became a teacher there. During my tenure at Hillside, I taught many subjects. I taught Fundamentals of Technology, Engineering and Design, Digital Media/Adobe Photoshop, Digital Video Production/Adobe Premiere, Web Design/Adobe Dreamweaver, and my personal favorite Career Management!! Additionally, I was the Saturday Academy Discipline Service Coordinator. I really enjoyed my years teaching and coaching there. Go Hornets!!
In 2017, I moved to Greenville, North Carolina and began teaching in Farmville, North Carolina at Farmville Central High School. Go Jaguars!! During my time at Farmville Central I was the Engineering and Design I & II teacher. I was also the assistant basketball coach there as well. During my time there we won many games. We posted a record of 86 wins and only six losses in three years. During those years we won two NCHSAA State Championships.
During my time at Farmville Central, my wife and I decided to build a home here in Johnston County so I could be closer to my native home of Mebane, NC, she could remain close to hers in Greenville, and along with our children, be close to our friends and family in the Raleigh-Durham area where we made our home for 15 years prior to moving to Greenville. We have been living in Johnston County since late 2018, with our four children, ranging from ages 13 to 3.
Luck would have it I was able to find employment here in Johnston County at Smithfield-Selma High School, doing what I love best, working with young people through education and athletics. In addition to being Test Cooridnator, I will also be the varsity coach for boys basketball. I am very excited about the opportunity to work with all of our students at Smithfield-Selma High School. Go Spartans!!!
