She is now in her 11th year teaching at Tomahawk Elementary School and could not be more excited! Mrs. Dolan loves to workout, go running, and go to the beach.

Mrs. Mayhew was born and raised in Manassas, Virginia. Growing up she always admired her fourth grade teacher and loved to “play” school with the neighborhood kids. Which explains why, she attended and graduated from Lynchburg College with a degree in Elementary Education. Mrs. Mayhew has had the joy of teaching fourth graders at Tomahawk Elementary school since 2005 and now is excited to work with second graders. Outside of school she enjoys spending time with her husband, Andy and two beautiful daughters, Jillian and Hadley. Some of her favorite things to do are relax, read a good book, go to the beach/pool, shop, and spend time with family and friends. Mrs. Mayhew looks forward to each and every year of teaching, growing, and having fun with her students.
