Welcome to Spotlight!

My name is Casey Graves, and I'm thrilled to be teaching 2nd grade Spotlight this year.

Our Units this year will revolve around the theme of Microscopes and Masterpieces: Looking at Science through Art.

 

About Mrs. Graves…..

My name is Casey Graves, and this will be my 10th year in the crazy and wonderful world of teaching. I earned my degree in Theatre and Elementary Education at Millsaps College in Jackson, MS. I also have my masters in Curriculum and Instruction from Christian Brothers University. I have been both a 3rd and 2nd grade teacher and joined the Spotlight community in 2018. I’m very excited to get to work with these bright and talented students. I’m a teacher who enjoys trying new things that interest and challenge my students.

I’m married to Logan Graves who teaches Biology at Lewisburg High School. We are major animal lovers and have a housefull! We have 3 dogs- a lab (Baloo), a pug (Olive), and a very cranky cocker spaniel (Lady).
