About the Author

Steve Jobs stated, "Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work." It is not what we do, but why that fuels the heart of every organization.

Kayren grew up in southeast Texas. She was raised by a single mother and grew up with her four sisters. Her unique school experience has helped to shape the workshops topics and themes. Struggling to define her self-worth in a world where no one looked like her, Kayren persevered through challenges and overcame social inequities along her path to success. As a result, she has partnered with other courageous educators who advocate for voices too often silenced, ignored, or assumed.

ayren earned her Bachelor's Degree in Political Science from Texas A&M Central Texas and Master's Degree from Lamar University in Educational Administration with Principal Certification. Entering public education nearly a decade ago, her focus was to share her own passion for learning with others and ultimately, impact the lives of students who felt that history-or school for that matter-was not for them. She soon realized and began to understand how important it is for students of color to see success in people who look like them. By building meaningful relationships and making learning culturally-relevant, Mrs. Gray vowed to equip students with not just content, but skills they can utilize beyond school and in the real world. In 2014, she was recognized as Ellison High School's Teacher of the Year and Killeen ISD Secondary Teacher of the Year Finalist. As an administrator, she focused on the climate and culture and the correlation between student-engagement and academic achievement. Despite various roles in education, Kayren has continuously asked the same question, "Is this the best decision for all students?"

Kayren Gray is the author of The Road to Equity: The Five C's to Construct an Equitable Classroom. Written with a powerful and purposeful message, the book will revolutionize the perception of your students, classroom, campus, and district by providing solutions to close the gap and change the narrative. If you are ready to begin your journey on The Road To Equity, utilize the road map to equitable outcomes through my interpretation of Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs as a reference point, moving through each level to reach self-actualization or in our case, a more equitable classroom.

Kayren is a military spouse with one son and two bonus sons. She resides in Harker Heights, Texas where she is active in the community and enjoys traveling. Her personal and professional experience has afforded her the honor to share her experiences to transform leaders and organizations on their path to peak performance focusing representing the varied human experience by having and creating a seat at the table. In her pastime, Kayren hosts weekly podcast entitled, "The Road To Equity" and the "Educators' Round-Table."
