Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Jill Grant

Welcome to Kindergarten!!

My name is Jill Grant Grant (yes my maiden name is the same as my married name-- no relation, I promise!!). I have been married to my husband, Shane for 27 wonderful years.  We have two children, Hayden (22) and Arden (16).  I grew up in Snow Hill, NC, which is about an hour from here and moved to New Bern in 2000.  I graduated from ECU (GO PIRATES!!) with a degree in biology.  I loved working in that field, but after having my first child and being a stay-at-home mom until he started school (at Brinson!), I decided to begin a new career path!  I got my K-6 teaching certification and have been at Brinson for 18 years. I quickly realized that was the best decision I could've made, because I found what made my heart happy... being a teacher!  I've taught first grade and kindergaten and have a passion for helping our little ones to develop and thrive in all ways!    In my spare time, I love to sing, craft, spend time on the water with my family and snuggle with our pets, Brennie (Calico cat) , Callie (Springer Spaniel) and Mazie (Pugador)!  

I'm very excited to be on this journey with you and your child and am looking forward to a year filled with love, learning and laughter!
