Degrees and Certifications:
I graduated from Calera High School. I then went to the University of Montevallo where I obtained a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Speech-Language Pathology and a Master’s degree in Education. I have taught 5th grade at Thompson Intermediate since 2001.
My name is Julie Gay. I live in Calera with my family. I have a daughter, Abby, who is a freshman at Troy University and a son, Riley, who is a freshman at Calera High School. I love to work out, run and read. In my free time, one of my favorite things to do is go for an early run, come home to a good book and drink coffee. Most of my time is spent having fun with my family and friends. In my last 16 years, I have taught all subject areas except Science. Now, I currently teach Reading, Language, and Writing. “Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.” –Fredrick Douglass
