Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! I am very excited for the 2019-20 school year. This will be my third year at Trailside Middle School. I will be teaching 8th grade Civics and Economics.
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 This was an eye-opening experience which allowed me to work with historical documents and images (some of which were hundreds of years old) on a daily basis.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 playing and watching sports, traveling, grading papers and spending time with my wife (Mrs. Grant), daughter (Sara), and dog (Rocky).
