Joye Gray grew up attending Bethel Baptist Church. While still in elementary school, she accepted Christ as Savior. An avid reader and writer, she knew at an early age that she wanted to be an English teacher. She felt privileged to be able to return home and teach in her church’s Christian school after graduating with a BS in education, specializing in English and speech.
Having taught since 2003, she is now responsible for all of the junior and senior high school English classes, as well as speech. She also directs the elementary Christmas play every year. A mother of three, Mrs. Gray loves to bake, craft, garden, and refinish furniture. She also loves to read. Her favorite Bible verse is Colossians 4:6 Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.
