About the Nominee: Abi Griffiths brings a lot of energy and excitement for learning to her Kindergarten classroom. She takes time with each student to give them one-on-one instruction and help them gain the necessary skills in math, reading, friendships and life. These comments from parents say it best:
"She takes the time to really give each student the individual help they need in different ways to succeed!"
"She not only teaches academics but teaches the kids to be responsible in all situations. The kids really admire and love her. She is extremely kind and thoughtful of each individual student. Her love of each student is evident through her words and actions."
"She is kind and patient with the kids. She sends me emails to let me know that my child had a good day just because."
"My son had a rough 2nd day of school. Ms. Griffiths took time to talk to me about how to help him be successful. She...takes time to let me know each day how he did (and he has been doing great)."
