Welcome to Kindergarten!  Image result for apple school

Hello, my name is Rhonda Griffin. I am very excited to be your child's kindergarten teacher this year. Together, we are going to have a lot of fun learning, growing, and exploring new concepts. This is my 27th year of teaching. I have taught kindergarten, second grade, and Early Intervention (EIP-K,1st,2nd, and 4th grade) Classes. I grew up in Bainbridge, Ga. and moved to Valdosta after high school. I graduated from Valdosta State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education in 1991. Some years later, I earned a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education in 1997. In 2006, I decided to return to school and received an Education Specialists degree in Curriculum and Instruction. My husband, Joey, and I have two beautiful daughters, Emily and Ashlyn. Emily is a senior in college pursuing an education degree, and Ashlyn is a junior in college pursuing an accounting degree.
