Ms. Gray - Dance Teacher
Ms. Gray has been working at Loveworks for the past four years as a paraprofessional, kindergarten teacher, and now the dance teacher. She began dancing at the age of 5. She spent 13 years mastering ballet, jazz, lyrical, tap, and hip hop while also competing and traveling throughout her childhood. After high school, Ms. Gray attended the University of Winona where she graduated with her bachelor’s degree in Social Work. Since teaching at Loveworks,  her love for teaching children has grown immensely. Her goals for our students are to help them explore their love for dance, promote self-confidence, and most importantly push them to be their best selves.
Mrs. Carter - Music Teacher

Mrs. Carter's journey with LoveWorks Academy started in 2005 as a third-grade student in Mrs. Chatter's class.

Since then, she has stayed a part of the LoveWorks family by performing with TKO Drumline, volunteering, and now as a teacher. 

She is an alumna of Virginia State University with a bachelor's in Music Education. Mrs. Carter currently serves as the General Music Teacher (K-5), Choir Teacher, and Co-Drumline Instructor for the 2020-2022 school year. Her goal for the music program is to provide students with foundational knowledge in music that opens doors to opportunities that they would otherwise not receive due to the lack of exposure or knowledge.
