Please welcome our new music teacher for Glenn A. Duffy Elementary! We're happy to have her! Gabby Hamilton grew up in Hiwasse, AR and attended Bentonville Schools. After graduation she attended John Brown University where she earned a Bachelor’s in Music Education and met her husband of six years, Steve. They moved to Gravette a year ago with their beautiful three-year old daughter, Kaylee. When Gabby is not teaching she can be found baking, reading books to Kaylee, and spending time outside.
We have another new employee coming to Glenn A. Duffy this year! Give a big welcome to our new PE teacher My name is Emma Wisdom and I am so excited to be the new PE teacher at GDE! I grew up in Rogers, Arkansas. I just graduated from the University of Arkansas in May where I obtained a Bachelor of Science in Teaching Physical Education and Health. I love all things sports and outdoors! In my free time I enjoy finding fun hiking trails and playing basketball. I am looking forward to all the fun activities and skills I get to teach the kids this year!
Let's give a big GDE welcome to our new art teacher! You can read a bit about her below: My name is Brandi Brown and I am going to be the new Art Teacher here at Glenn A. Duffy Elementary. This will be my first year teaching, however I am not new to the district. I have been blessed to work as a Paraprofessional at Gravette High School for the past 7 years, a position in which I will forever cherish! I grew up in SW Kansas and attended college at Wichita State University where I obtained a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Art History. I absolutely love art and all things creative! I like to dabble a little in all different mediums, but photography and the darkroom have always had my heart. My family and I moved here and have been part of the Gravette Community for over 7 years. We couldn’t ask for a better place to call home! My husband, Austen and I have been married for 11 years. We have two beautiful children, Asher 10 and Keeley 9. They will be in the 4th and 5th Grades at Gravette Upper Elementary. We are beyond proud to call ourselves Gravette Lions! I am very much looking forward to this school year teaching and creating along side your little artists!!
Meet GDE's newest counselor! Read her message to you below: My name is Lisa Baker and I am so excited to be the new counselor at GDE. I have been a counselor for the Webb City School District in Missouri for the last 9 years and taught 6th grade math for 10 years prior to that. I have three amazing children (and their spouses) and just had my 7th grandchild on July 19th; the girls have overtaken the boys 4 to 3. I am looking forward to a fabulous school year with the Gravette students, parents, and staff!
