Great Start to the Year!

We’ve had a great week in 4th grade. We have been scientists, engineers, writers, and mathematicians. We are studying about Henry David Thoreau and Walden Pond through  books by D.B. Johnson. We are also studying maps and just where we are in this big world.

Welcome to the Arts

Hello! My name is Gregory McCord and I will be your child(ren)’s Art, Technology, and Music teacher for this school year!  I would  like to start by introducing myself.

I am originally from Nashville, TN and currently live in Scottsville, KY (just over the TN-KY stateline).  I graduated from Western Kentucky University in 2008 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music and again in 2011 with a Bachelor of Music Education degree in Vocal Music.  I have previously taught Choir and General Music in Kentucky and look forward to continuing teaching the Arts here at St. John Vianney.  I have been happily married for 6 years and have 2 children, Taina age 13 and Austin age 7, and 4 dogs.

Again, I look forward to meeting everyone and having a fun filled year!
