Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Zach Groves
Hello, all! My name is Mr. Groves and I teach 8th grade social studies here at Swift Creek Middle! This is my third year here and 10th year in education. I love blending history and technology.
I graduated from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (Go Cougars!) with a degree in Mass Communications and earned my teaching license in Middle Grades Education from East Carolina University (GO PIRATES!!!!)
Along with using online programs like Google Classroom to help enrich my lessons, I create videos for YouTube that help connect main ideas and historic concepts. Check them out here!
I'm happily married to Mrs. (Christy) Groves, who is also a teacher in Johnston County at Powhatan Elementary. We also have a son named Trevor!
