Hello! My name is Christine Grunewald and I've been teaching at Lakewood High School since 2005, and love it! Growing up, I would never have anticipated living in Michigan, much less, teaching in a rural area, but life has a funny way of pleasantly surprising you. I was born, raised and lived on the sunny beaches of Southern California for 32 years until I met my native Michigander husband. We have two twenty-plus year old children, a dog, a cat and a house we've lived in for twenty-one years - and I wouldn't change a thing.
My education is also split between the states. I attended the University of California, Irvine, where I earned a bachelor's degree in Economics and played volleyball. After college, I found myself in the private sector working in marketing for 15 years, however once I moved to Michigan, started raising children and coaching volleyball, my professional direction changed; I went back to school at Grand Valley State University earning a teaching certificate, as well as a Masters in Education.
My personal and professional journey has been blessed, and I look forward to continuing to know, teach and learn from our Lakewood community.
