Profile of Jeff Gruber

I was born at Libby, Montana in 1966 to Bob and Joan Gruber.  I attended school in Libby as well graduating in the spring of 1984.  In the fall of 1984 I enrolled at Western Montana College in Dillon and graduated in the spring of 1989 with a B.S. in Secondary Education.  I majored in Social Science because of my life-long interest in past events.

My first teaching job started in the fall of 1989 in the small town of Judith Gap, Montana where the entire high school population of 28 witnessed my early attempts of making the past relevant in today‚Äôs world.  It was in Judith Gap that I met my wife, Doreen and we were married in June of the following year.  We taught there for another two years and then decided that we would like to try and secure jobs in a new locale and landed back at my hometown in Libby. 

For the past twelve years I have taught at Libby High School.  I presently teach World Geography and Montana History as well as Heritage Education.  It is my Heritage Education classes that are the most rewarding but also the most challenging.  My goal for the students in Heritage Education is to use their community as a source of scholastic inquiry.

My interests include all outdoor activities, reading, trying to make sense of local, national, and international events, and trying to be a good husband and father for my lovely wife and daughter Emma.

  2. Jeff--Thank you for the great inspiration you have given me as we begin our investigation on the river and the valley.  Libby keeps coming up as a topic in our discussions and interviews--you gave us a headstart!
