My name is Canaan Groff and I am the Science and Phys Ed instructor at Compass. I am a graduate of Western Michigan University with a B.S. degree in K – 12 Physical Education and Secondary Education Biological Sciences. Currently I am working toward my Masters degree in Educational Leadership at Central Michigan University. This is my 5th year at Compass and I also have 1 year of experience in the CHS gym as a Physical Education teacher. When school is out for the day I venture out to the field or gym where I coach JV/varsity football, 8th grade basketball, and JV baseball. Those activities take up much of my time, but when I get the chance you can find me golfing, or fishing, or hunting; pretty much anything that can get me up and active or outdoors.
I am excited to continue my development as a teacher at Compass as well as help your student grow into a successful, young adult. I am hoping that I can learn as much from the students as they do from myself. Please feel free to frequently monitor the progress of your student by regularly logging in to Infinite Campus; it is crucial for the success of your student to have parent/guardian support and encouragement. If at any time you have questions, comments, or concerns please contact me by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 269.250.8945; if you call during school operating hours then please leave a voice mail and I will return your call as quickly as I can. Thank you and talk to you soon.
