At Grace Grown Academy, we strive to create an engaging school experience for our students that encompasses faith into learning. Our Microschool takes great pride in striving to provide students with a personalized education and nurturing environment, where they can flourish academically, socially, and spiritually.
We believe that every child is a unique individual with their own learning style, strengths, and challenges. Our Microschool model is based on a personalized approach, where we create customized learning paths for each student, tailored to their needs and interests. We also integrate biblical principles and Christian values into our curriculum, helping students develop a strong faith foundation that will guide them throughout their lives.
We find importance in giving children real life experiences, which is something they don't always receive in other school settings! We will have opportunities for students to experience gardening, cooking, fundraising for a good cause, problem solving projects, and much, much more! We believe that great learning goes beyond the desk and happens when students are engaged and having fun!

This will be my 8th year teaching! I grew up in Greene County but now live in Madison County with my husband, our one year old daughter, and our yellow lab. I attended the University of Virginia where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Masters of Teaching in Elementary Education. Go Hoos! We have such a fun & exciting year ahead of us! In our classroom, your child will be cared about and their ideas, thoughts, and actions will be valued. We can't wait to learn their unique talents/strengths in order to best serve their educational needs and to truly become a family!

I always knew I'd be a teacher! With a Masters of Arts in Teaching from JMU- Goooo Dukes- I taught 4th grade in Greene County before having our oldest, I then quickly realized my place was at home. From SAHM to homeschool mom, I can't imagine any other education for our kids and am overjoyed to be able to provide that to others! I am so excited to work with you all in this unique, close-knit educational experience. It takes a community to give kids the education they deserve, and I can't wait to build that community with you!
