Mrs. Gant (Frye)

  • Hi! I'm Denise (Gant) Frye and I'm excited to begin my 3rd year as the Special Education Teacher in the K-2 Autism Class at Lowes Island. 2020-2021 is going to be an amazing year! A little bit about me...I earned my undergraduate degree from Auburn University (War Eagle!) with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Theatre. I spent 20+ years in the IT indrustry before answering my calling to become a Special Education Teacher. My first year of teaching, I was honored to be awarded the SEAC 2018-2019 Outstanding Special Educator of the Year Award. 

    Outside of school I have a wonderful husband and 5 amazing kids including identical twin boys. We have 2 dogs, 2 cats and 9 chickens. We live out in the country and enjoy all things outside - hiking, apple picking in the fall, swimming and taking walks. I love to read, cook and bake. My favorite season is fall. I can't get enough of it.
