Mrs. Tiara Griffis

Hello, and welcome Pioneers to another great school year! My name is Tiara Griffis and I am the Part-time School Counselor here at IASC! I am on campus Mondays, Tuesdays, and every other Friday in the 6th grade pod. I am originally from Williamsburg, VA and moved to North Carolina about 5 years ago. I received my B.S. in Psychology and M.Ed. in Counselor Education from Virginia Commonwealth University. I also received my Ed.S. in Educational Administration & Supervision from Old Dominion University. I am currently pursuing my Ph.D. in Educational Psychology at NC State University. Go PACK! I am married to Rich and together we have 3 beautiful daughters: Kierstyn, Reign, and Lennox. I love traveling, music, and trying new foods. Outside of working at Innovation, I run a clinical mental health practice and supervise/teach student teachers as well as future counselors. I've been in school counseling for 6 years, which all of my years have been at the high school level prior to coming here. I love what I do and hope that my time here with you will help you in achieving your social-emotional goals.
