    As a kindergarten teacher at Grove Avenue, I have the pleasure of welcoming new minds, playmates, parents, families, siblings, and excited learners. Grove is a place to grow in kindness, community, academics, and friendships. I am honored and privileged to see students and families eagerly step in and proudly step out of Grove's long withstanding and heartfelt doors.Debbie ScanlanTeacher

    Grove has the best and biggest playgrounds, it’s so fun to burst out the doors and play with my friends. I’ve been going to Grove my whole life and as a baby it felt really big, but now it doesn’t because I know my way down all the hallways.Reece EricksonStudent

    Teaching is shining a light on your students' paths. I love providing a nurturing environment for students to learn, making connections with families, and fostering a strong feeling of community. Together, we grow!
