• Dear Parents and Students,

    My name is Jennifer Birchett and I am new to Grimsley HS and teaching!  I am very excited to start this new chapter in my life.  I was raised right here in Guilford County.  I attended Western Guilford Middle School and Western Guilford High School, but don’t hold that against me.  Thanks to our new principal, I’m a proud Whirlie now.  After HS, I earned my B.S. degree in Chemistry at High Point University.  I have been working as an Analytical and Product Chemist in Greensboro for over 18 years. 

    Teaching is something that I never considered, until it was time for my own child to go to school.  I started to realize the important role schools and teachers play in the lives of our children.  I spent a lot of time volunteering at my son’s school over the years.  Being with him and his classmates was honestly the most fun I have ever had.  I eventually realized that I wanted to be at school all the time. 

    I love the energy at Grimsley.  I truly enjoyed meeting some of my new students at open house.  Next year, I will bring one of those mini sports fans that also spray water (inside joke for those that attended open house).  I look forward to the challenge of teaching.  I promise to work extremely hard this year developing, and mentoring my students.
