Joe Grandia, MA

Science and PE Specialist

Joe has been a long time educator in the Bay Area where he was born and raised. After attending San Francisco State University, Joe began teaching environmental science at an outdoor education program in the South Bay, where he was able to work with thousands of students from around the area in week long sessions. It is there that he became particularly interested in working with students with learning differences. In the classroom, Joe encourages students to discover their own passion for learning through exploration, hands on learning and social/emotional growth. In his free time you can find him out by the ocean or exploring local trails via bike.
