Coach Grant Sommers
Hello and welcome! I am very excited to begin the 2020-21 school year, hopefully, everyone enjoyed their Summer and is ready for a great school year. I am the Behavior Academic Classroom(BAC) teacher. All core subjects are taught in the BAC, as well as, Social Skills. In the BAC, student's positive behaviors are tracked and rewarded with incentives. The goal of the BAC classroom is to prepare students to be successful in the General Education setting.
A little bit about myself, I am a 2001 graduate of Samuel Clemens High School. After high school, I began attending the University of Texas at San Antonio studying criminal justice. I took a break from college in my junior year and enlisted in the U.S. Army. I served four years as an Infantryman and left the Army in 2009. I returned to UTSA and completed my Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice. I was employed as a Parole Officer for six years and decided to pursue a career in education. This is my fourth year as an educator and a third year at Kirby Middle School. I also coach football, boys soccer, and boys track at Kirby.
