Mrs. Ray is in her 10th year teaching at Alvarado ISD.  She is REALLY looking forward to teaching in the NEW BUILDING and the NEW CHOIR ROOM!

Mrs. Ray has a Bachelor of Music Education degree from Howard Payne University in Brownwood, Texas, and 15 years of experience teaching music  in the Alvarado, Brownwood, Mansfield, and Ruidoso, N.M. school districts.

She has also served as Minister of Music at various churches in Texas, New Mexico, and Oklahoma since 1986.  She is currently serving Hillside Baptist Church in Alvarado.  

She has been happily married to her husband, Bob, for 30 years. Bob is the pastor of Hillside Baptist Church here in Alvarado and works for American Air Filtration, a company that sells air conditioner and furnace filters online.  Mrs. Ray also has an 95-pound Boxer/Lab/Chihuahua mix dog that she named Beau (which means “Beautiful” in French and “Boyfriend” in the Southern United States) and a cat who likes to wrestle with the dog and cuddle with humans that Mr. Ray named Butch.
