St. Stephen's & St. Agnes School
Upper School Latin & History Teacher
Alexandria, Virginia
Dr. Daryl “Gus” Grissom teaches both History and Classics at St. Stephen’s & St. Agnes School in Alexandria, Virginia. He received his Ph.D. in History at the University of Maryland, College Park, with a dissertation focused on Thucydides’ analysis of the Peloponnesian War. But his tenure as a Communications Officer in the United States Marine Corps gives him a special interest in integrating technology in the classroom both for student-driven research and communication. He has been published in the Marine Corps Gazette and the Proceedings of the Naval Institute with articles primarily focused on the role education and independent reading play in the leadership and tactical development of military officers.
