Mrs. Kristyn Gray
Welcome to the LA-4 PreK Class at Pontchartrain Elementary! I'm excited to begin my 15th year teaching and my 3rd as a PreK teacher at Pontchartrain. I graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi in 1996 with a BA in Speech Communication and soon realized that teaching was my passion. I went back to school and completed my Teaching certificate in Early Childhood - 4th grade. I have taught K,1st,2nd, and 3rd grade in Texas and Mississippi but my favorite by far is PREK!
Our PreK program is very special. We infuse purposeful play with social emotional lessons and experimentation with letters, segments of sound, writing, math and science. Our students leave PreK completely prepared for a successful Kindergarten experience. Our students experience a weekly music class with Mrs. Lopez and monthly science lab visits with Mrs. Ronquillo. Our class has a full time para, Mrs. Breanne Kittrell. She and I work together to help students complete literacy and math goals, handle social emotional issue such as sharing and being a good friend and explore artistic expression.
