Mr. Rayfield has quite a different story as to how he became a principal. His background as an administrator did not begin in education. In his youth, he attended a private school in Maryland. Shortly thereafter, he started coaching students in secondary education.
During college, it was recommended to him that he get his educational leadership and principal administration certificate. As an assistant principal, Mr. Rayfield largely works with special education and students with IEPs and 504 plans.
“I like making a difference in people’s lives” is what Mr. Rayfield stated. He explained that he finds joy in creating a welcoming and happy atmosphere for his co-workers and students.
