Salutations from Dr. Grainger
My name is Dr. Michael Grainger and I was born in the city of Nottingham, located in the midlands in the center of the British isles. I came to the United States in 1986 and have lived for the past 28 years in southern California-specifically Orange County and the Coachella Valley. I have taught all grades from Kindergarten through 8th grade but my I have to say that I really enjoyed teaching middle school more than any other grades. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management, a Masters degree in secondary education and a doctorate degree in administrative leadership and teaching. I also hold a single subject mathematics credential and have taught all grade levels including algebra- which hands down was my favorite teaching assignment.
