I nominate Mark Peay

Teachers & Principals | 05/23/2019

Adrianne Griffith and Erica Lashley

Mark Peay from Global Preparatory Academy was nominated twice:

“Mark Peay is the new Music Teacher at Global Prep Academy but he's so much more than just a Music Teacher. Mr. Peay talks with the children before, during and after school. Students really look up to him for advice without judgement. My 6th grade, 12 year-old, loves Music class and what he loves most about it, is that it's not rigorous but more laid back and he's made to feel comfortable (which causes him to perform better overall). Mr. Peay has been a beneficial addition to the school and I know I'm glad to have him there. Please keep doing what you're doing Mr. Peay and that's putting kids first.” – Erica Lashley 

“He is the music teacher for global prep academy and he is just amazing. He has this way of making each child really shine on their own and stand out from the crowd. My daughter would come home and cry and tell me that nobody likes me, however Mr Peay has made her feel like her voice is heard and important. He really takes that time and now she looks forward to that class everyday. She has even joined his performance choir outside of school. He is just an a amazing person through and through, a rare gem in my eyes.” - Adrianne Griffith


"I have had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Peay for only a few short months.  However, during this time his passion for students is undeniable.  He has shown himself to be a champion for the education of the Arts in the form of music that reaches students in ways that surpasses that of a typical music teacher.  He is engaging and is enthusiastic with staff members when it comes to preparing for and participating in events.  As a co-worker it is a joy to see him come in to work each day with a smile and a hug for staff and students.  It is clear that Mr. Peays dedication to children is his passion and something that he truly believes in." - Angela P. Moss, Director of Parent and Community Engagement at Global Preparatory Academy
