Mr. Carter Grant

Hello! I am very excited for the 2017-18 school year. This will be my second year at Trailside Middle School.  


I am from Leesburg, Virginia and a graduate of Heritage High School. I earned my B.A. in History from James Madison University and my M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction from George Mason. Before coming to Trailside I previously taught social studies in Prince William County and in Leesburg at J.L. Simpson Middle School. 


Prior to teaching I had the pleasure of working in public history at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Office of History in Alexandria, Virginia. This was an eye-opening experience which allowed me to work with historical documents and images (some of which were hundreds of years old) on a daily basis. 


This year I will be co-sponsoring the soccer club on Thursday afternoons. In my free time I enjoy traveling, cheering on the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards, and spending time with my wife (Chelsie), daughter (Sara), and Bernese Mountain Dog (Rocky).
