My name is Cheryl Maio. I was born, raised, and educated in the state of Rhode Island. I have one terrific son named Edward. I was fortunate enough to have apprenticed under renowned Professor Russell Kolton, of Rhode Island School of Design College. I owned a graphic arts advertising company for over 25 years. It was rewarding, challenging, and incredibly fulfilling. Even now, when I return to Rhode Island, it is still a thrill to see my logo designs on various signage throughout the area. Upon moving to Louisiana in 2002, I went to work for St. Tammany Parish Schools. Over the years, my “titles” have included Computer Technology Coordinator, Second Grade Specialist, Study Island Administrator, Specialized Technology Facilitator, TAP Mentor, and Faculty In-Service Presenter. I joined the wonderful Trafton family in 2010. In 2012, I was appointed Computer Lab Coordinator. Soon after, I also began coordinating Trafton's Accelerated Reader program. The Trafton Computer Lab is an environment designed for the highest level of learning. Our lab is a place where all students can learn, grow, and excel with our teachings ranging from basic computer technology to the latest cutting edge programming, animation, and design.
