Mrs. Cheri Gray

Hello! My name is Cheri Gray, and I am so excited to be your child's first grade teacher this year! Just in case there is any confusion, you may know me as Miss Gump. However, I married my best friend over the summer, so now I have a new name! 

For the past two years, I have been a fifth grade teacher here at Clark. Before that, I taught third grade in a small district outside of Dallas, TX, and I taught second grade for four years in Springfield, MO, at the beginning of my career. I also completed student teaching in a third grade and first grade classroom. In addition to my elementary education degree, I am currently wrapping up my Master of Science in Education - Literacy. Only one more class to go! 

When I am not at school, some of my hobbies include playing with my puppy (Doc), reading, spending time with family and friends, watching sports (especially Cardinals baseball), trying out new recipes, and watching movies and tv. 

I look forward to getting to know all of you this year!
