Grace Bayles was born and raised in Virginia and has lived in Austin, Texas, for the last twelve years. She loves being one of the original teachers at Spicewood Christian Academy, and returns for her third year teaching first graders! Her desire was to teach both first grade and music and that’s exactly what The Lord provided for her at SCA. With a degree in music and 16 years of teaching experience, Ms. Bayles integrates her love of song and her strong faith into such subjects as math, history, geography and Bible. The character that has been built raising four adult daughters and now a grandson spills over into every area of her life. Her favorite quote is “happiness is not having what you want, but wanting what you have.” Grace says, "my life chapter is Isaiah 61, as it reflects my passion and work with restorative justice and prison ministry over the last seven years."
