Welcome Chuck Mayes to NEE

Welcome Chuck Mayes to the Network for Educator Effectiveness team!

NEE’s newest team member is a former educator for the Sikeston R-6 School District in Sikeston, Mo. He retired this summer after 30 years in K-12 public education, where he has served as a teacher, elementary principal, middle school principal, and for the last eight years as the Sikeston Chief Academic Officer/Assistant Superintendent working with curriculum, assessment, gifted education, and virtual learning.

Chuck has several years of experience with NEE as a school administrator, as Sikeston has been a NEE member district since 2013. He brings his vast knowledge and experience to NEE, where he will provide support to member schools, conduct NEE trainings for evaluators, and assist with new and ongoing NEE projects.

Chuck is a lifelong resident of Southeast Missouri, where he graduated from Risco High School before moving to Sikeston to begin his career in public education.  He is married to his wife, Ronda, and they have two children.  His son Alex and daughter-in-law Lauren are both teachers for Sikeston. His youngest son, Aaron, is a sophomore at the University of Alabama-Huntsville majoring in chemical engineering.

Chuck enjoys being active in his church, attempting home remodeling projects, playing in trivia contests, and spending time with his new grandson, Hendrix.  

Please join us in welcoming Chuck Mayes to NEE! We are lucky that Chuck has decided to spend his retirement with us, and we look forward to the collaborations to come.
