Degrees and Certifications:

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 since 1996. I received my under-grad 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 Board Certification in 2011 and renewed in 2020. 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. The 2022-2023 school year is my 25th year teaching and my 12th at CHHS!

My husband and I have been married for 20 years and we have two beautiful children, Sam and Holly, both of whom are here at CHHS. My hobbies include reading (of course!), loom knitting, playing with my four cats and planning new and exciting lessons and activities. Also, I have recently discovered the joy of plants and succulents. Welcome, scholars.
