Mary Lee Howard said her daughter Janelle Gray has a sixth sense about how to help people around her who were in need.
“She gives herself selflessly and thinks nothing of jumping in to help others. If she sees anybody in trouble, she will ask what she can do to help. I did a lot for my kids, but I get tired thinking about all she does,” Howard said.
Gray, of Plainfield, teaches English as a Second Language at Meadow View Elementary School as a profession, but outside of the classroom, she donates her time to Girl Scouts, her neighbors, friends and mission trips to Haiti with New Life for Haiti.
