A little about Mrs. Griffin...
I received my BFA in Communication Arts (Illustration) and my Art K-12 Certification through East Carolina University. Beginning in 2001, I have taught Visual Art in North Carolina to grades K-8. I enjoy exploring new places and love the outdoors. To me, students should have fun creating art, while at the same time learning skills that will help them be successful throughout their lives.
