Dr. Taka S. Mays

I am the Clinical Instructor and Program Coordinator for the Educational Leadership: Intern to Excellence Partnership Program (ELITE) in the Department of Educational Leadership and Research Methodology. I collaborate with St. Lucie, Martin and Okeechobee County School District Leadership Development Teams and their school principals to help cultivate the next generation of school leaders.

My educational experiences include adjunct teaching at Florida State University, classroom teaching in grades 2-5, as well as assistant principal and principal roles in elementary schools over the last 19 years.

My research interests are teacher perceptions of culturally relevant pedagogy and culturally responsive leadership.

As Clinical Instructor and Program Coordinator, I vow to continue the excellence of the ELITE Partnership Program through collaborative planning and innovative thinking!
