Hello! I am Mrs. Gray. 

My passion is teaching! I have over 25 years of experience in the Oakland Diocese, 19 of those years in teaching First Grade. I have a BA in Art (Studio) and my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential (CLAD). I have a Catholic background and education, having attended Saint Joseph Elementary School and Presentation High School, both in Berkeley. I am the proud mother of four grown children, all of whom attended Catholic elementary and high schools. My newfound hobby is SCUBA diving and exploring the amazing new world of God’s underwater creatures! 

Six and seven-year-old children fill my days with joy and laughter. They inspire me to keep learning and growing myself. I appreciate their unabashed enthusiasm, energy, and eagerness to try new things. I run a tight ship, but a fun-filled one. This year, we will strive to become independent, responsible and respectful children of God. All students will be challenged to read, read, read! Our helpers, Mr. Wizard and Ms. Witch will guide us and keep us excited about learning. We will explore a variety of topics with realia and hands-on activities. Let the fun begin!
