Educator's Bio

            Ms. Grindley has dedicated the past 15 years to the field of education as a teacher, administrator, literacy coach, and motivational speaker.  Graduating from City University of New York (CUNY) Hunter College with a double major in English Language Arts and Secondary Education, she specialized in working with at-risk students from underprivileged and under-served communities.  She continued her studies in education at Capella University where she earned her Master’s degree in K-12 Education, specializing in closing the achievement gap for at-risk students.  Soon after, she earned certification as a new teacher mentor through New Visions Teacher Academy, and then as a literacy coach for grades 5-12 at CUNY Queens College. 

           Currently, she is completing her third year of doctoral study at Liberty University where she will earn her PhD in Education Administration, Management, and Organization.  She has written articles and research papers regarding Free Appropriate Public Education for underprivileged Black youth, and is a popular speaker at academic events and conferences worldwide. 


Ms. G's Philosophy of Education


        The profession of teaching is one of the most significant aspects of a community’s development, progression, and elevation.  It is not a job- it is a craft, and should be entered only by those with purposeful hearts.

All children can learn, and it is the teachers’ responsibility to find the best avenue for each child to receive and understand curriculum content as well as life lessons in citizen-socialization and professional etiquette. 

There is a greatness inside of EVERY individual that is unique to their specific purpose while on this plane of existence; a teacher’s purpose is to guide and show students how to unlock and embrace that greatness so they can use it to make positive contributions to their community and to the world.
