Mrs. Renee Gray
Did you get a chance to take an apple from our class "Giving Tree" when we met? Some things that our class could use include Skittles, stamp pads, and file folders. Of course, a homemade batch of play dough is also appreciated. Thank you for all of you support as we kick off a great year of Kindergarten!
I am so excited to be back at Four Oaks this year! While I am originally from upstate NY, I came to North Carolina twelve years ago and have been happily basking in our lovely warmth ever since. After teaching fourth grade here at FOES for five years, I took a break from teaching to stay at home and raise my children. With my seven-year-old daughter and four-year-old son now happily settled into school, I have joyfully come back to the classroom. During my time at home, I went back to school to get my birth through Kindergarten add-on to my teaching license, so was delighted to join the Kindergarten team right back here in Four Oaks. I am looking forward to getting to know all of you as we journey through this Kindergarten adventure together!
