Meet Mr. Grimm


I have been teaching for 20 years, and 18 years  have been at St. Augustin School where I teach middle school social studies.

I grew up in Knoxville, Iowa, and attended the University of Northern Iowa.

What I like most about teaching: I enjoy the daily interaction with middle school students.  It is fun to watch the kids grow academically and socially as they progress through middle school.

A funny story I have about teaching: I have too many memories (funny, sweet, horrible) to narrow it down to just one. A memorable story was the time I walked a student to the nurse’s office and he stopped in the hallway.  I bent down to talk with him, and he threw up all over me!  Good times!

 About my family: My wife, Melissa, and I have two children; Aubrey and Zach.  My wife is a teacher at Waukee Middle School, teaching 6th grade reading/language arts. Our family enjoys spending time with our mini Golden Doodle named Lola.  She is a wonderful dog!  

Outside of school, I enjoy: I like spending a lot of time with my family, taking trips, and being outside.  Aubrey is active in dance, and Zach plays Little League baseball.  I am an avid sports fan.  I love the Iowa Hawkeyes, Los Angeles Rams, and Boston Red Sox!
