Ms. Patrice Gray

Greetings Longhorns!

I am excited to join the Bessie Coleman family as the counselor for 6th grade A-L and all 7th grade students.  

I am a native of Dallas and have fond educational memories from St. Peter's Academy, Gaston Middle School, and Skyline Career Development Center.  This year marks my 18th year in education. Prior to coming to Coleman, I worked in Houston as a business/technology teacher for 13 years, then a school counselor.  Though I loved Houston, I am happy to be back home with my family and friends.

Middle school students need support and encouragement in a very important stage of their life. I take pride in being a counselor and enjoy being a support system to students as they navigate their pathway.


Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today. –Malcolm X
