Subjects Taught
Second Grade

I graduated from Lee University in 1990 with a B.S. in Elementary Education.  In 1994, I received my Masters degree in Elementary Reading from UTC.  Since then, I have also earned 45 hours beyond my Masters degree from Cumberland University.


I have been teaching for 21 years.  For the past 16 years, I have been teaching 2nd grade at North Lee.  Prior to that, I taught in Whitfield County Georgia for 5 years.  During that time, I taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades.


My name is Marilyn Grissom and I have been teaching 2nd grade at North Lee for the past 16 years.  I was born in Louisville, Kentucky and moved to Cleveland when I was 7 years old.  I attended Hopewell Elementary, Bradley Junior High School, and Bradley Central High School.  I have always loved kids and I have always loved school, so I think I was destined to become a teacher.

In my spare time, I enjoy taking care of my animals, spending time with my family, reading, and watching my favorite TV shows.
