Hi! My name is Miss Emily McCray. I am the Agriculture Instructor and FFA Advisor at Hoopeston Area High School, and have been since 2011. I grew up outside of Claytonville, IL and graduated from Cissna Park High School. After high school, I went to Parkland College and Illinois State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Agriculture Education in 2010. I am now on the Agriculture Alumni board at Illinois State University, “Go Redbirds”! After graduating, I taught a year in northwest Illinois.

I currently reside in Hoopeston, with my cat Kiki. Besides being on the Building Leadership Team and PBIS committee at Hoopeston Area High School, I am a member of the National and Illinois Association of Career and Technical Educators, National Association of Agriculture Educators, and the Illinois Association of Vocational Agriculture Teachers, of which I am on the Board of Directors. Outside of school, if I am not at an FFA event or with other Illinois ag teachers, I enjoy reading, spending time with family and friends, and travelling.
