Hi, my name is Ray Gee, and I am the Lead Education Program Specialist in the Tucson office at the Arizona Department Education for the Nita M. Lowey 21st Century Community Learning Centers Grant, otherwise known as 21st CCLC. My role is to provide technical assistance and monitor compliance for the 21st CCLC sites in Yuma County. In addition, I am the 21st CCLC Team’s liaison with the ADE Grants Management department and I help with fiscal matters. I have been with the Arizona Department of Education for the last 8 years. Prior to working at ADE, I was a teacher, administrator, and 21st CCLC site coordinator for 16 years in a public school district in the Tucson area. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from the University of Arizona and a Masters of Arts in Education Leadership from Northern Arizona University.
