Mrs. Carol Sumter
My name is Mrs. Carol Sumter and I am proud to be your child's first teacher in Gravette Public Schools. I love working with children and that is why I chose teaching in the early childhood field. This will be my 45th year teaching. I taught 28 years in Oklahoma Schools. I have taught 17 years in Gravette. I graduated from Northeastern Oklahoma State University, where I received a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. I also have an Early Childhood Endorsement. I have four children and eight grandchildren.
My assistant is Kim Knight. She is married to Randy and they have two children. Kendall is a graduate of GHS, and lives and works in Fayetteville. Garrett just graduated from GHS this May and is beginning his freshman year at NWACC. Ms. Kim has worked with children for 13 years and is looking forward to a great year in pre-k. Our goal is for your child to have the best Pre-K experience possible.
