Mrs. Kami Kinsey
After taking a few years off from teaching, I am so excited to be a part of Bray Elementary in CHISD! My background and experience is in teaching 5th and 6th grade. I began teaching in St. Louis, Missouri and taught there for 5 years (1 year of private school and 4 years of public school). I even had the opportunity to teach for the school district I graduated from, Hazelwood School District. After moving to Texas in 2003, I began teaching in Arlington ISD and stayed there for 2 years. I took some time off to raise my 4 children and became the Director of a private pre-school in Mansfield. Ultimately, I knew someday I would return to my "big kids."
This year we are focusing on the CHISD motto to "Be BOLD and Believe." Our students here at Bray have so many opportunities to grow and learn and have so many people that care about them. I want to challenge the 5th grade to embrace the motto and bring their best "self" to school every day. We will work hard together and I believe that all children will be successful if we all put in the effort.
5th grade students have the opportunity to lead by example and encourage one another to reach their highest potential. I have high expectations for our class to achieve great things and become a community of learners.
