Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Gregg Pivec
I graduated from Penn State University with a degree in Elementary Education. While at Penn State, I played drums for the Penn State Blue Band and got to perform on the football field and travel to several College Football Stadiums and Bowl Games. After graduating, I accepted the 5th Grade ELA position at Dillard Drive Elementary School and moved down to North Carolina. For the past 7 years, I have stayed in the same classroom (room 404) and have taught the same subject (ELA). Each year brings new challenges and new adventures as I continually try to incorporate technology into many lessons and activities to help students develop a love for reading and learning.
Outside of the classroom I have many hobbies. I enjoy playing drums, hiking, and gardening. Additionally, I am an avid Penn State, Baltimore Ravens, and Baltimore Orioles fan and enjoy watching many of their games. My wife, also a teacher, and I spend a lot of our time at home with our rescued beagle, Tess, or traveling. We especially enjoy visiting National Parks around the country. So far we have been to over 50 of the 412 National Parks.
