  • My name is James Grounds. I have lived in Brazil my entire life. I attended both Vincnenes University and Indiana State University where I ran Cross Country and Track and field. I graduated with a degree in K-12 Physical Education. I have been teaching at North Clay since 2016. 


    I am the Head Boys Cross Country/Head Girls Track Coach at Northview. My hobbies include coaching, runnning, reading about running, reading in general, exploring the great outdoors, watching Purdue beat Indiana, and eating. I'm way faster than Mr. Strain for anyone who is wondering. Teaching is something that I never thought I would be brave enough to do, but I have found a love for it very quickly. I strive everyday to push students/athletes of mine to become the best that they can.
