Dr. Gray holds a B.S. and M.S. from Boston University, an M.Ed. in Reading and Language from Harvard University, and a Ph.D. in Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences from the CUNY Graduate Center. She has taught for over 30 years as a Reading Specialist and Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New York. After studying at the CUNY Graduate Center, Dr. Gray taught SLP graduate students as Clinical Faculty at the MGH Institute of Health Professions in Boston. She then served as an Assistant Professor of Communication Sciences at Bridgewater State University, where she taught college and graduate courses in Linguistics, Language Acquisition, Young Children’s Language Development and Language Disorders in School-Aged Children.

With her family of four, she recently moved back to her beautiful home state to enjoy a more relaxed lifestyle while providing needed services in language and literacy.
Children are at the heart of all we do. We nurture a child's curiosity, ignite enthusiasm for exploring, develop tools for inquiry, for invention, for achievement. We welcome families into a community-wide collaboration to help our children grow into their best selves - responsible citizens and stewards of the greater world, makers of the future.
