Mrs. Courtney Gray
I was born and raised in North Tonawanda, NY, a small town located between Niagara Falls and Buffalo. (Go Bills!) I have called central North Carolina home for over twenty-three years now. I received my under-graduate degree from Barton College (Go Bulldogs!) in 1998 and my master's in education from the University of Phoenix in 2007. I also achieved National Boards Certification in 2011 and will work towards renewal this year. I am also AIG and AP Literature certified.
I taught seventh grade ELA for one year before going to Clayton High in the fall of 1999. I taught at CHS for eleven years before transferring to Corinth Holders High in time to open in 2010. I am excited about the 2019-20 school year, my 22nd year teaching and my tenth at CHHS!
My husband and I have been married for eighteen years and we have two beautiful children, Sam and Holly. Holly is at RMS and Sam is here at CHHS this year. My hobbies include reading (of course!), loom knitting, playing with my five cats and planning new and exciting lessons and activities. Also, I love shoes. You'll see.
