My name is Mrs. Groves, and I'm thrilled to be a member of the Northern Middle School community. I have taught sixth grade language arts at this outstanding school since its inception in 2006. My teaching experience includes teaching high school English and middle school language arts in both public and private schools. My family and I relocated to Greensboro, North Carolina from Atlanta, Georgia in 2004.   In my spare time, I enjoy reading, running, and spending family time with my five children.  

    My educational philosophy is to instill a love of learning in all of my students and to encourage them to become lifelong readers and learners.
