Mrs. Gray - Social Studies: American History and Government/Economics
Welcome to Mrs. Gray's classroom! I have taught Social Studies in Taylor ISD for the past 15 years. My husband and I happily reside in Taylor and enjoy participating in small town life. Our three children graduated from Taylor High School before attending college. I am passionate about my subject matter and completed my Master's Degree in American History and Government in the summer of 2018. If you are interested, my master's project is an ebook on Dr. James Lee Dickey at this website, http://scalar.usc.edu/works/james-lee-dickey-doctor-leader-mentor-hero/index. Feel free to leave comments on the ebook in areas I could improve it.
My schedule for the 2018-2019 school year is as follows:
- 1st Period - US History
- 2nd Period - US History
- 3rd Period - US History
- 4th Period - US History
- 5th Period - Government in the fall, Economics in the spring

Please see the appropriate syllabus for class policies, supply list, and pace of instruction.
Student assignments can be found on https://www.schoology.com/. Please contact me for your child's class code.
I am also the National Honor Society Sponsor for Taylor High School. Students are eligible for NHS during the Spring semester of their sophomore. Criteria include a 90 or above average, application including an essay, teacher recommendation, and panel approval.
NHS members are the creme de la creme of Taylor High School, having been selected on Scholarship, Leadership, Character, and Service. As a result, they have mandatory participation in meetings and group projects and 24 hours of required service hours each year. National Honor Society membership is prestigious and meaningful; it makes an important statement on job applications as well as college and scholarship applications. I encourage all students to strive for membership.
