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.
