Welcome to 3rd Grade!

Welcome to Mrs. Garay's Class

My name is Michelle Garay and I have been in the education field for close to 20 years. I have experience teaching elementary and middle school for the bulk of this time and was also a school administrator for the last six years of my career.

Teaching and shaping the minds of our youth is my calling and reading, language arts, and writing are my absolute passion. You will see this passion come alive in many of the assignments your child completes in class and takes home to share with you. 

I look forward to meeting all of my third grade students. Parents, I hope that you will volunteer in our classroom whenever you have time. It takes a village!

Mrs. Garay
