Debbie Grigsby believes the personalized learning model at SCA is a dynamic and wonderful way for high schoolers to learn. She started at SCA in the fall 2018. Debbie also teaches STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) as the Introduction to Robotics teacher.
Debbie has been a teacher for 23 years in many different capacities. She taught 5th and 6th graders at a site based, classroom charter school in Arizona. She traveled Shasta County for the past 13 years as a homeschool teacher for another charter school in Redding. She also taught reading and math interventions, was a home and hospital teacher, as well as a substitute teacher. Debbie homeschooled her own daughters in English and history through SCA.
Graduated from Shasta High School in Redding then University of California at Davis in 1992 with a BS in Human development, Debbie went on to get her teaching credentials from Simpson University in 1996.
Debbie and her high school sweetheart husband of 26 years have been working on their fixer upper house for 10 years. That is one of her favorite hobbies as well as hiking, kayaking, being outside and entertaining friends and cooking with her adult daughters (Kathleen, Hannah and Caroline) in her “new” kitchen.
