My name is Kirsten Grove and I have been an elementary school teacher since 2009! I am from Williamsport, PA and attended Lock Haven University where I obtained a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education. I am certified to teach K-6 all subjects and mid-level social studies and language arts! I love history and I love to read and write! 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 teaching career in the Williamsport Area School District teaching 6th, 5th, and 1st grade. While at WASD I attended Penn State University where I studied to earn a Masters in Educational Leadership. I loved my time there so much that we jumped at the chance to move to Happy Valley during the summer of 2018.
My husband, Brady, and I have two children, Annelise and Thomas...they are both Ferguson Freezers! Outside of school, we all love to stay active! We love to travel, read, and spend time outside! You’ll often find us hiking, biking, kayaking, and exploring! I am so thrilled to be a first grade teacher at FTE and I can't wait to share the amazing journey of first grade with you and your family!
