I am looking forward to the 2022-23 school year at Ola Middle School. This will be my third year at OMS. I am excited about getting back to teaching math! I LOVE math! I will be teaching 8th grade math and 9th grade Honors Algebra (to 8th graders).
A little about me...I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I am very proud to be at Ola Middle School again this year, and I am looking forward to a wonderful year with you and your child.
I graduated from Florida Atlantic University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education with an ESOL endorsement and earned my Masters of Science in Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment from Walden University. I added my Gifted Endorsement in April of 2014. I have previously taught 2nd grade, 4th grade, and 5th grade and 6th grade. I am certified to teach elementary, all middle school academic subjects, and math from elementary through high school. I have just finished my EdS (Specialist Degree in Education) in Media and Instructional Technology through the University of West Georgia.
I am married with two children. My husband, Ed Griffis, teaches 6th grade math at Ola Middle School. We have two sons, Ethan and Evan. Ethan recently graduated from college and Evan is a student at UGA.
I truly believe that communication is the key to a great parent-teacher-student relationship. I will send regular newsletters via email and will have information on my webpage.Please feel free to contact me if any questions or concerns may arise. Email is probably the best/fastest way to get a message to me.
