Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Mr. Grant and I'm excited to begin my sixth year at Trailside Middle School. This will be my first year working as a school librarian. For the past five years, I have taught 7th-grade U.S. History and 8th-grade Civics and Economics. Prior to teaching at Trailside, I taught social science in Prince William County and at J.L. Simpson Middle School in Leesburg.
I am from Leesburg, Virginia and graduated from 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 taught Civics and Economics in Prince William County and U.S. History at J.L. Simpson Middle School in Leesburg. Most recently, I completed my certificate in school librarianship from Longwood University.
In my free time, I enjoy playing and watching sports, traveling, reading, and spending time with my wife (Mrs. Grant), daughter (Sara), dog (Rocky) and cat (Magsweets).
