Before LEAD:     I previously taught Spanish at Park Hill High School for 10 years.  I was the Foreign Language Department Chair for 5 of those years.         

Why I’m at LEAD:  I am at LEAD because I saw an incredible opportunity to impact the students of our district on a very meaningful level through the educational design of the LEAD Innovation Studio.  I firmly believe in the core philosophies of the school and am excited about the emphasis on student-centered learning and mentoring.  

What I’m most looking forward to: I am most looking forward to working with such a dynamic, talented team of educators and an equally awesome group of students. I am so fortunate to be able to work with these individuals and learn and grow alongside them!

About meI graduated from Park Hill High School in 2004 and studied Education and Spanish at K-State.  I completed my Master’s and Educational Specialist Degrees through Arkansas State University.  I am one of two Gourleys at LEAD as my husband David teaches math there!  I love to read, watch reality TV, travel, and play with our dog.
