Continuing our series of getting to know new faculty and staff, and individuals in new roles, Mr. McGrievy doesn't exactly fit into either category. Although he is certainly no stranger to Old Trail and its community, it's also his first year as a full-time instructor.
Mr. McGrievy, who is a math teacher at OTS, has an undergraduate degree in math from Miami University and a master's degree in statistics from the University of Akron.
"I love teaching math because I have learned that there are many different ways for students to understand concepts," Mr. McGrievy said. "It's always interesting for me to hear students explain how they 'get it.'"
He added that the small class sizes at Old Trail allow him to more easily differentiate his instruction and devote more of his attention to struggling students as well as students who are ready for more of a challenge. In his free time, Mr. McGrievy enjoys running, riding his bike (sometimes even riding it to work!), skiing and reading."My family and I have recently converted an old school bus into a camper and we like to travel around in it during the summer," he added. That's a sight we'd love to see!
Thank you for all the work you do on behalf of our students, Mr. McGrievy!
