Hello! My name is Joseph McGruther and I have been teaching at Pinehurst Elementary for 5 years. I started teaching as a special education teacher, but after having so much fun teaching 4th grade, it is where I have remained. In my free time, I enjoy playing board games, cooking, attempting to bake, and watching documentaries with my hound dog Tod.
I love working here at Pinehurst as I am surrounded every day by dedicated teachers and staff, and by students who are curious, excited to learn, and full of personality. I am extremely honored to have been chosen as Pinehurst Elementary’s Teacher of the Year and I look forward to what this year has to bring!
