Mr. Justin Grabowski
Welcome to my History Class.
This is my 22nd year teaching in Poquoson City Public Schools. I have taught all three grades and levels of Social Studies at Poquoson Middle School. I was formerly the Military Interpretive specialist for the Yorktown Victory Center (now American Revolution Museum at Yorktown) which is part of the Jamestown Yorktown Foundation. I graduated from Christopher Newport College with a Bachelor's Degree in History and a minor in Education in 1992. I also earned a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2005. I am certified to teach History and Social Sciences 6-12.
At Poquoson Middle School, I currently teach US History I to 1865 and US History II 1865-Present. In 2014, I was honored to receive from the teachers of Poquoson Middle School, the Teacher of the Year award.
My wife and I have two sons and I enjoy studying history and current events, playing boardgames and miniature wargames, reading, visiting historic sites and volunteering as a historical interpreter at the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown.
