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!
