Mrs. Gourley

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 me: I 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.
