LaRhonda May is a proud wife and a mother of two young boys. Originally, she is from Louisiana but has been calling Houston home for the past 17 years. She started her teaching career in Houston as a high school Biology teacher at Sam Houston HS. During her 16 years in public education, she has continued to serve students in Houston in various instructional coaching roles including being a Dean of Instruction, Principal in Residence and was recently named Founding Principal for IDEA Lake Houston Academy.

This year, she is a fellow in the National Principal Academy Fellowship (NPAF) by Relay Graduate School of Education. Mrs. May is thrilled to be back to Houston’s north side to ensure that our community of scholars have access to a rigorous curriculum that will help them matriculate to and through college. She is grateful for the opportunity to serve the Greater Houston Area by proving what’s possible when scholars, including her Kindergarten son at IDEA Spears, are equipped with knowledge and skills to excel in their educational experience. There is no limit to what brilliant minds can do!
