Mr. Damian Groves - 5th Grade

  Hi, I am Damian Groves , 5th Grade Science.  This will be my 17th year in education, my third at Little Elm ISD.  I am married to Lynne who is a retired school nurse from Lake Dalls ISD.  We have two grown children, Ashley and Kevin. Ashley has been married for 6 years to Ryan.  She is an Occupational Therapist (TWU) and Ryan works for thr fraud divisionof a bankig company (TCU).  They have a daughter, Emma who is going to be 4 and Annalyn who is 18 months.  Kevin has been married to Alisha for 8 years.  He  is a 6th grade teacher (Math) in Tyler ISD(UNT) and Alisha, his wife, stays home and takes care of Jameson (5) and Jonathan (2 ).  Lynne and I moved to Aubrey two years ago. We  bought a house built in 1891 and are enjoying making it our own.  We count our blessings every day.

   Every day in my classroom I try and discuss how what we are learning today is and will be relevant to them in the future whether they go to college or enter the workforce.  I see students with a lot of misconceptions about college, as if it is an unattainable goal.  Showing them what they can accomplish with hard work and effort is important in changing those misconceptions.  I want them to move on with the confidence that they can achieve any goal they set for themselves. My goal for each student is that they will become lifelong learners and contribute positively to their communities.

   I am looking forward to working with you and your child. Everyone at Brent Elementary, myself included, will work very hard to ensure your child and every child is successful!
