Mrs. Bray

I am married and have two beautiful girls.  We love to spend time together outdoors at the lake or river.  I love to read and can't live without coffee.  I have been a teacher at Madison Street Academy since 2000.  I love my job and working with children.  I like to provide an environment that is organized so that instruction and learning can take place.


I want the environment to be work-oriented, while also being relaxed and friendly. I also believe that establishing a positive relationship between home and school is extremely important.  Establishing these relationships early and maintaining them will help all involved feel a part of the learning process.  I invest a lot of time early in the year to build strong relationships with my students.


We will review and practice the rules, procedures and routines.  This will create a predictable environment where children feel safe to take risks and make mistakes. I truly believe that all children can learn.  My management plan helps to provide an atmosphere that is conducive to learning.   I have a genuine concern for student success.  My goal is not just to teach children, but to ensure that students learn.  Thank you for entrusting your child to me.  I promise to do my best to be your child’s companion in learning.  If at any time you have questions, please feel free to contact me at me.
