Gregory Grote

Tell us why you chose "Something Else".

I intend to teach a class designed to provide support for ECE that doesn't fit any category suggested.

Who are you?

I am currently the UniServ Director for BTUU. I was an elementary classroom teacher for 20 years, an elementary principal for 1 year, president of PEA for 6 years and now serve in my current role. I am a human who values others and who wants to improve the world around me and empower others!

What led you to education?

My goal of improving my world was my guiding principle. Education was on way to achieve that goal--the best way!

What do you have a knack for? How did you find that out?

I am a creative thinker and can motivate others. I discovered these traits early in my life and have been lucky to have had a chance to practice these skills for the past 29 years.

What are you passionate about personally? What do you really enjoy? What can’t you stop talking about?

I love supporting others. I also love several sports--soccer, tennis, basketball, football, etc. I love dancing, my wife and my children!

Where can we find you when you’re not working? What’s your favorite way to spend a weekend or a Sunday afternoon?

I will be spending time with my wife, watching movies, going for walks, playing games. You may find me playing tennis or racquetball as well.

What would be impossible for you to give up?

My wife and Diet Mountain Dew.
