Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Cherri Bays

The 2017 - 2018 school year will mark my 18th year of teaching. I have a BS degree in Psychology from Old Dominion University and a BS in Education from Salisbury State University.  I am also AIG certified from Barton College. Most of my teaching career has been at East Clayton Elementary school. However, I have also taught in Virginia and California before landing here.  My experience is mostly elementary education, specifically third grade.  But, I have also taught 2nd, 4th, and 6th grades.   I just love this school and all it has to offer the students who are educated here.  I have two children, Rylee and Campbell.  Rylee is entering her junior year at Corinth Holders High School, and Campbell will be entering her 4th grade year right here at ECES. When I was a new teacher is was my goal to make sure that my students left my classes having shown academic growth.  After becoming a mom, I realized that that was not enough.  It then became my goal to help students grow socially and personally as well.  This change in my mindset allowed me to form closer relationships with my students.  Afterall, that is what life is all about....relationships.  I will come to love your children like I do my own.  I strive to be the kind of teacher that I want for my own children to have.  I am excited about this school year and all that I have to learn from your children!
