Welcome to Mr. Kirby's website.Mr. Kirby5th Grade Science937-335-5439 ext firstname.lastname@example.orgBuilding/Room No. 202Welcome Back!!! I hope your summer was filled with fun and excitement.I am beginning my eleventh year teaching 5th grade science and math here at Miami East. Prior to Miami East, I spent three years teaching 4th grade math in Dayton, and two years in special education, one year in Champaign County and one year in Milton-Union.After graduating from Miami East High School a few years back, I continued my learning endeavors at Urbana University. I graduated from Urbana University in 1997 with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Elementary and Secondary Education. I am currently working on my Masters Degree at the University of Dayton in Educational Leadership. I recently went through a class to become a registered weather spotter with the National Weather Service.When I am not in the classroom, I can usually be found coaching on a field or court somewhere. I have coached Varsity football at Miami East since 2004. I have also spent time coaching basketball and baseball. Besides spending time on the field coaching, I also spend part of my spring and summer umpiring baseball. I also teach an umpiring class to new umpires in the winter.If there is a moment of free time, it is usually spent with my family. My wife Mandy (also a Miami East grad) and I have three children, Scot, Tyler, and Kyleigh. We currently live in Milton-Union school district. However, Tyler and Kyleigh attend Miami East and are very active in extra-curricular activities within the district. Scot graduated from Miami East in 2016 and is attending Lindsey Wilson College.GO BLUE!!!!!
