Sallie Gray has been in education since 2003 and has been a teacher at AGS since 2008. Her love of athletics, coaching, and inspiring students led her into the field of education. As a graduate of an all-girls secondary school, Sallie Gray knows first-hand the value of single-gender education. She credits her own all-girls school experience with helping foster her confidence and build her character. In addition, Sallie Gray strongly believes in the positive impact of athletics on students, specifically girls. Participation in athletic teams and competitions teaches girls to support one another, work as a team, and take risks. Inevitably student-athletes will learn to fail and be resilient, and the lessons learned on the court or playing field last a lifetime.
Little Known Fact About Me:
I can juggle.
Why I Teach:
Whether it’s knowing a student from class, advisory, the tennis court, or from camping with the outdoor club, fostering healthy relationships that help students be their best selves is what keeps me coming back to AGS year after year. I teach because I want to positively impact the world in a direct manner, but I teach at AGS because it truly is the best place for girls and I see the fruits of our labor in our graduates.
