Welcome! 2018 will be my first year teaching Social Studies, and I am looking forward to exploring the ancient world together with my team. I began my career as an E/LA teacher and will incorporate reading strategies and literacy skills into the Social Studies classroom.
C. C. Griffin has been my second home since 2006, first as a parent and then as a teacher. I have never worked at another school - I am, and always will be, a Gryphon!
My daughter, Jessica, is a sophomore at UNC Wilmington, and my son, Jacob, recently relocated to Brooklyn, NY to begin his career in Industrial Design. When I am not at Griffin, I enjoy reading, cooking, listening to The Avett Brothers, traveling (near and far) and spending time with my family and friends.
I welcome communication with parents - I encourage it! We are partners when it comes to educating the whole child, and I hope to have your support. The best way to reach me is through email: firstname.lastname@example.org
You can leave a message on the school's voicemail system, but that is not as reliable - 704-260-6410. You can send a note with your child, but middle schoolers have a tendency to forget to deliver those notes. Any way you choose to communicate is fine with me as long as we keep those lines of communication open!
