Thanks for visiting this page to learn a little more about me. My name is Jill Grantham. I have had 2 incredible years at Easley and am very excited to continue to teach with a very talented group of teachers! I also feel so fortunate to return to such an active and supportive community! Prior to becoming an Easley Eagle, I was a Creekside Eagle where I was a technology specialist for 3 years. I have also taught as a fifth grade teacher and technology specialist in both Chapel Hill and Greensboro. This will be my 22nd year in education! I feel lucky to have worked in so many great places and with students and teachers in a variety of capacities!
This summer was a very exciting time for my family! We were fortunate enough to travel to 4 amazing places during our time off from school. Our first destination was to New Orleans! Wow did we experience a lot in our short time...French Quarter, Garden District, amazing music & food, the WW2 museum, Magazine & Frenchman Streets, and I saw one of my favorite bands Maroon 5! Upon our return my husband, dog Mims, and I headed to one of our favorite North Carolina Beaches. Our final two destinations gave us the opportunity to reconnect with our North Caroline Mountains. We spent time in Hendersonville and then in the Banner Elk Area for the 4th of July week. Oh how we love our mountains! When at home we love to support the Bull City and our Durham Bulls. We attempted to break a world record recently at a game for the most people wearing sweatbands in one gathering. I heard we did it! How cool!
My husband and I have one dog named Mims. He is a Shepherd mix. He is not much of a swimmer, but he LOVES to fetch the ball in our backyard and go on long walks. He also has a funny habit of taking my husbands socks out of our bedroom and relocating them in other places in our house. He is extremely loyal, oh so lovable, and up for almost any adventure! Mims is very patriotic!
During our stay in Banner Elk we hiked all over Grandfather Mountain. Even though the bridge is much more sturdy than our last visit so long ago, I just couldn't bring myself to walk across! It is so beautiful up here from either side. While in Hendersonville we went over to the Pisgah National Forest hiked and took a few trips down Sliding Rock. Brrrrrr....that is some COLD water!
For fun I enjoy reading, running, paddle boarding, watching sporting events, long walks with the pup and spending time with my hubby, family and friends.
