About Ms. Gravett
It all started when I was in second grade. My teacher's name was Miss Parker. She is the reason I am here today...she inspired me to become a teacher! Miss Parker made a lasting impression on me as a learner, friend, teacher, and human being. She instilled in me a love for teaching and learning, of which I hope to pass along to all of my students! This is the start of my 12th year of teaching in Flemington Raritan. I've taught first grade, second grade, third grade, and now I'm teaching fourth grade! I am proud to be a Barley Sheaf Bear!
The early years of my life I spent living between Detroit, MI, Cincinnati, OH, and Naperville, IL. I loved growing up in the Midwest, close to my entire extended family. I grew up with the most amazing parents and two older sisters. Michelle and Kim will forever call me their "little sister," a name that I used to detest, now I love it! My family and I moved to Flemington when I was 11 and ready to begin 6th grade! I went to Reading-Fleming Middle School (before it was RFIS) and Hunterdon Central. I played volleyball for Central's girls team and joined many clubs where I met some amazing friends who I still keep in touch with! After I graduated from high school I moved south to Virginia and attended Virginia Tech. I earned my Bachelors degree in Human Development-Early Childhood Education and a Masters of Education in Curriculum and Instruction. I am a Hokie through and through. You may ask...what is a Hokie? My answer is... I am! I love to watch Virginia Tech sports, but my favorite sport to watch is football! GO HOKIES!!
When I'm not at school, my favorite thing to do is spend time with my family. I am a proud aunt to three perfect nephews and one perfect niece. Being an aunt to all of them has been such an amazing gift. Whenever we spend time together, my family and I love to cook, play card games, tell stories, and laugh a lot! I also enjoy scrapbooking, watching the Yankees, baking/cooking, and reading many different types of genres. I'm also a proud "dog mom" to an 11 year old bulldog named Jack. He is a mush, and cuddling with him on the weekends is another way I love to spend my time. My partner, Danny, and I live in Morristown, NJ in a home we purchased three years ago. We live in a wonderful neighborhood and he and I love being so close to a fun place like Morristown.
Below is a picture of my dog, Jack. He is probably thinking, "Mom. I'm sitting like a good boy. Please give me a cookie!"
