My name is Brandi Gray. I have been teaching since 2007 and I started with the Russellville School District in 2009. I am thrilled to be a part of Center Valley Elementary School. I have taught pre-K, 4th grade and 3rd grade. I love spending time by the pool with my 3 amazing kids and my husband. We also enjoying loading the boats and heading to the creek as often as possible. When I am not teaching or at the creek I love to read. My favorite genre is fantasy and sci-fi novels. It’s going to be a great year and I look forward to building strong relationships with you and your child!
