About the Teacher

  • Welcome to Grunsky, Students, Parents, and Guardians,

         My name is Mr. Timothy Gaea and I have taught at Lottie Grunsky for 16 years at various grade levels, most coming in 6th grade.  I have 4 children of my own, all of them have attended Grunsky for a period of time and 3 who I have taught in my own class as 6th graders.  Many of you know my wife Mrs. Gaea, who is a 3rd grade teacher, and might have had her as a 2nd grade teacher.  I have my Bachelor of Science Degree from West Virginia Wesleyan College and my Masters Degree from The University of the Pacific.  My favorite subject is Math with a high interest in Social Studies.  I enjoy motivating my students in various ways, including, but not limited to, freedom of choice, sporting activities in the class and outside the class, and intrinsically.  I believe in building a good rapport with my students in order to get the most out of them in class.  I ask that all students come to school on time and ready to learn daily.
