My name is Kirsten Grove and I have been an elementary school teacher since 2009. I am a proud Millionaire from Williamsport, PA. After high school, I attended Lock Haven University and obtained a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education. I am certified to teach K-6 all subjects as well as mid-level social studies and language arts. I love history and I love to read and write...but my favorite subject to teach is math! While attending LHU, I partcipated in track and field and cheerleading. Sprinting, jumping, and tumbling were my favorite activities in college sports.
I spent the first 10 years of my career in the Williamsport Area School District teaching 6th, 5th, and 1st grade. While at WASD, I attended Penn State University where I earned a Masters in Educational Leadership with a focus in Curriculum and Instruction. I loved my time there so much that when my husband got a new career opportunity, we jumped at the chance and have lived in Happy Valley since 2018.
My husband, Brady, and I have two children, Annelise and Thomas...they are both SCASD students attending Park Forest Middle School and Corl Street Elementary. We also have two doodle-dogs, Charlie, our mini-goldendoodle and Stella, our mini-bernadoodle. As a family we all love to stay active with our favorite sports, traveling to new places, reading, and spending time outside. My husband and I both coach youth sports. When we're not on the field...you’ll often find us hiking, biking, kayaking, or exploring together!
More than anything else, I love meeting new people, making connections, and building relationships. We are going to have an AMAZING year together...first grade is a year of tremendous growth and I'm so happy to be on this journey with you and your family.
