Hello! My name is Mrs. Gurley!
I am a teacher, wife, and mother to two boys.
This is my 8th year teaching in Birdville ISD! I love teaching because I love seeing my students learn and grow into successful scholars!
I was born and raised in Orange, Texas. After high school, I went on to graduate with an Associates of Science and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Texas Tech University.
I have a wonderful husband, Steve, and two amazing sons. Dylan is in tenth grade, and Austin is in sixth grade.
I love to spend time with my family and friends. I enjoy anything outdoors, swimming, running, cycling, and crafts. I also love to read!
A few more of my favorite things:
snacks- SkinnyPop, dark chocolate, ice cream
foods- chips & dip
restaurants- Uncle Julio's, Chilis, Panera Bread, and BJs
beverages- diet green tea with extra ice from Sonic and caramel frappaccino's from Starbucks
colors- red, turquoise, purple, and all things sparkly

Class wish list:
*Books on CD
*Headphones (the kind that go over your head)

I am looking forward to a great year filled with learning and fun! I am so excited to get to know my new scholars and watch them grow into problem solvers, readers, and authors!
