Mrs. Beth Gray
Welcome to Seventh Grade World History!
I am a former Thompson Tiger and I also attended Oswego High School, graduating from the district in 1997. It has been amazing to watch all the changes that have been happening in Oswego over the years. After graduating from Oswego High School, I went on to do my undergraduate work at North Central College, in Naperville, Ill. I majored in history at North Central College, with a minor in secondary education. I received my master’s degree from Illinois’ Rockford University in 2005 with an emphasis in instructional strategies. I have been teaching at Thompson since my graduation from North Central in 2001.
I love working with students and seeing their creativity blossom in junior high. I also run the Thompson Drama Club, and I have taught language arts and the drama elective at Thompson. Becoming a teacher was always a lifelong dream of mine. I made the decision in fifth grade after having fantastic teachers at Long Beach Elementary School. I have a great job that I love, and I can’t wait to meet and work with all of you.
