Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Rick Grantham
This is my 7th year teaching at Woodcreek HS and this year my courses are English 9, English 11, PE and the Adulthood 101 senior elective. I was born and raised in Tucson, AZ (Arizona Wildcat fan! Bear Down). The first 15 years of my career were spent primarily in church ministry followed by 4 years as a national presenter for a software company. I also spent a brief tenure in the Marine Corps reserves and Navy Chaplain Corps.
I have a passion for coaching and have been heavily involved in several Woodcreek athletic programs including the wrestling,water polo and golf teams.
My goal is for all my students to become better communicators. I put an emphasis on helping students be CLEAR and CONCISE with both the written and spoken word. In my PE course, the focus is helping students acquire active, healthy habits they can enjoy for a lifetime. Adulthood 101 is a senior elective that gives practical instruction on subjects like renting your first apartment, personal finances and applying for jobs . . . anything that can help as students transition into the adult world.
