Mrs. Penny Grande
Hello! My name is Penny Grande and I am beginning my 4th year at Bassett High School. I have taught government, U.S. History and Economics for 20 years in Maryland, Tennessee, and Virginia. I grew up in Maryland outside of Washington DC and attended Salisbury University where I received my Bachelors and Masters in History Secondary Education. I taught my first two years outside of DC at Forestville High School and then relocated to Salisbury, Maryland where I taught at Parkside High School for 10 years. After moving to Bristol Virginia/Tennessee, I taught at Sullivan Central High School in Blountville, TN for 6 years. My family relocated to the area last year when my husband became the head football coach at Ferrum College. We have 3 sons 19, 16 and 13. I am excited about the upcoming year teaching AP/Dual Enrollment VA/US History and Government.
