"My entire journey has been here in Desert Sands. I started as a parent and was actually a volunteer art teacher in my student's class and from there I got my teaching credential, became a teacher, later a principal at Ben Franklin which was an outstanding experience, then I came over and took over technology in the district as the director of technology," May Vollmar told News Channel 3's Peter Daut in an exclusive interview.
She spoke about the challenges of the past two years and the district’s work to address them going forward.
