I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself and let you know how excited I am to have your children in my class. My name is Kirsten Gray and I have been teaching school for thirteen years. I have been married to my wonderful husband, Matt, for twenty-two years and we have two children, Sarah and Joshua. Sarah is sixteen and is a junior at West Valley and Joshua is twelve and in seventh grade at Monroe Catholic School. Beyond my human family, we also have one other family member, a dog-named Ben. Although my biological family is very important to me, my school family is also very important. I take pride in my experiences teaching and in my students.
My teaching experience consists of teaching a year in both sixth and seventh grade, but most of my time has been spent teaching first through third grade. This year will be my seventh year teaching third grade at University Park Elementary school.
