Jennifer T. Gray, PrincipalCredentials:
I am originally from Louisville, Kentucky (Go Cards!) and moved to Florida in 2003. As I begin my 12th year in Administration, I am so very fortunate to have been planted at Don Brewer Elementary School. I received my Bachelors of Science degree from Georgetown College and then completed all of my graduate work at the University of Louisville. I have a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education, as well as an additional certification in Educational Leadership.
Teaching and Administrative Experience:
I began my teaching career as a First Grade Spanish Teacher in Hawkinsville, Georgia. I then moved back to Oldham County, Kentucky where I was raised and attended school. After teaching for several years at Crestwood Elementary School, I became an Assistant Principal at the same school. In 2003, our family moved to Fernandina Beach, Florida where I began the “Florida” chapter of my educational career.

We all must strive to do our best in every situation. As an educator, we must continue to find the best in ourselves and our students to continue to help raise them up and reach their goals. We all have hidden talents…the true gift arrives when we discover how to tap into those talents and unleash our full potential!
School, Softball, School, Football, School, Volleyball, School, Baseball, School…and any other activity that my three children choose to become involved in! Our lives truly revolve around children – at Don Brewer Elementary, as well as at home.
I am a sports fanatic! Moving to an NFL franchise city in 2003 has been such a wonderful benefit to our relocation! I was raised in a state where college basketball “ruled,” very similar to the way in which I see college football guiding so many social calendars around here. Our family has truly embraced the area teams and has developed a passion for college football to go along with our love for basketball.
