The Alumni Connection - Grant Goble

You might say education and the Vanguard tradition are in Grant Goble’s (‘02) blood. The son of a former Viking Head of School, Goble is following in his mother’s footsteps and is now working on his Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Denver while serving as a research assistant and adjunct professor at the university.
“I am researching these transformational moments in theatre arts,” he said. “Within teacher education, I am now helping new teachers prepare as they enter the field. My intentions are to have a greater impact on education as a whole through my teaching and research.”

Goble married his Vanguard high school sweetheart, Kate Cunningham Goble (‘03).

“I had great experiences with many other teachers as well, which have influenced who I am today. If I had to name a single teacher it would be Mr. Livingstone, or as we knew him, Stone. It’s obvious Mr. Livingstone has a larger than life personality, but he is also a passionate educator who cares deeply about his students and the content he teaches. In the classroom, he is a very effective teacher, providing a wide array of learning experiences, which really connect the students to the content of the course. He combined traditional lectures with active learning, such as throwing water balloons at each other to study the Revolutionary War. He builds a respect for the content.”  

Goble cited Livingstone’s WWII course, where he connects veterans and students and instills a respect that crosses generations.

We are excited about Mr. Livingstone’s new class on the Vietnam War in addition to his amazing World War II class that he has taught for over 20 years.

The foundation of both his war history classes involves connecting students with war veterans by inviting them to in speak. Please contact the school if you know Veterans who would like to share their story.
