 This is my second year at St. Gregory's Preschool. I have always loved working with young children. While my Bachelor's degree is in business, I worked with children as a babysitter, tutor, and substitute teacher during transitions and throughout college. I was born and raised in Arlington, Texas. I have an amazing husband, and we have been married for 8 years. We have two sweet girls, ages 5 and 3, who are currently making their way through St. Gregory's Preschool. They love it here and always look forward to coming. I love working with this age. I am so excited to be a part of each child's life and to help them learn and grow.

Michelle Travelstead

Substitue teacher

I taught for five years here at St. Gregory's as the Pre-K teacher. I have started my own business, but am excited to stay on as a part time substitute teacher.
Both my boys attended school here; my husband and I were very pleased with the  nurturing and kind atmosphere. 
I have been married to Garry for 18 years although we have been together for 22.  I was blessed to have stayed home with my boys for 8 years.  We have two handsome boys, Tanner is almost 12 and in the 6th grade and Carter is 9 and in the 4 th grade at Roberta Tipps Elementary.
A little more about me.  I moved to Texas from Ohio so I like to travel and visit family.  My husband and I both enjoy watching our boys play baseball.  I like to hang out with family and friends, do a little shopping and drinking Starbucks coffee is my guilty pleasure!
