Grade 2

LG My name is Lesley Gray, and I will be your child’s second grade teacher.  This is my first year teaching at Leverett Elementary and my tenth year teaching elementary school.  I taught fourth grade for five years, fifth grade for three years, and both fourth and fifth for one year.  Second grade is a new adventure for me, and I am very excited to embark on the journey!


I grew up in Raleigh, North Carolina, but I’ve lived in Massachusetts since 1999.  I earned my Bachelors of Arts in History from UMass-Amherst in 2009 and my Masters of Elementary Education in 2010.  


I live in Northampton with my partner, our two teenagers, and our adorable cat.  When I’m not teaching, I enjoy reading, playing board games, cooking vegan food, and taking walks with my family. I also love traveling! I just returned from a camping trip in New Mexico.  It was amazing to spend a week in the desert with my kids.
