Mrs. Amy Shipley

I have taught kindergarten at Gray Elementary School for the last four years.  I taught first grade for eight years, third grade for thirteen years, and computers for grades K-5 for three years at Carter's Valley Elementary School in Hawkins County.  I have three children; Joey, Brittany and Taylor, four grandchildren; Carter, Dawson, Kennedy, and Joseph.  I live on a farm in Gray with my husband Jim where we raise beef cattle. In my free time, I enjoy going to the beach, traveling to various countries, and within the United States, cruising, camping, walking, scrapbooking, and just hanging out with my family and friends. I attend Boones Creek Christian Church and love serving others at our church.
