Mrs. Brittany Griffith
Hello Students and Parents!
My name is Brittany Griffith and I will be your English Language Arts and Reading teacher. Blocked ELAR consists of a 90-minute class period in which students will learn foundational skills in both reading and writing. The benefit of this arrangement is that I get to know you as a reader AND a writer as we progress in both areas, and I will be better prepared to help you grow. Thank you for visiting my page, I look forward to learning and growing together this year.
I attended the University of North Texas for a Bachelor's degree in English Literature before pursing my teaching certification as a Generalist grades 4-8. At the University of Arlington, I pursued a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a triple literacy focus and will graduate in December 2019. In tandem with the Master's degree, I have also pursued additional certification as a Reading Specialist, Master Reading Teacher and ESL certified instructor, which will also be complete by December 2019. In the future, I hope to continue my education in the area of curriculum and instruction so that I can better serve the students in my classroom. I truely believe we never stop learning and growing.
