Ms. Latoya McGriff
Hello, I am Latoya McGriff! I was born and raised in Lancaster, SC. I have lived in Aiken for nine years. I don't have any children of my own but I do have two nieces (2&5) that keep me on my toes! I have 6 years of experience as second grade teacher. I haven't been as active the past two years because of a terrible car accident (Nov, 6, 2016). I'm not 100% healed but I know that your child will help me heal the rest of the way:) If you want to know details about my recovery and the entire process please don't hesitate to ask. I am super excited about returning to teach this year. I did my student teaching in Kindergarten in 2012, so I have some experience with Kindergartners. I am very lucky to have a teacher assistant with many years of experience in the Kindergarten World and she speaks Spanish. Hopefully, when your child leaves our class they will be able to speak some Spanish too! Teaching is my purpose and passion. I honestly can't see myself doing anything other than teaching.
I like to be involed wtih my students inside and outside of school, if your child plays a sport or has a birthday party please invite me! I believe that it takes a village to raise children. I also believe that parents are just as important as teachers. I look forward to working along with my parents and students this year. This is going to be an AMAZING year!I hope you're ready!
