March 2016 Inspire, Engage, and Grow Employee of the Month
We want to congratulate Ms. Marti Jo Griffith on being recognized as the Inspire, Engage, and Grow Employee of the Month. Ms. Griffith is a teacher who genuinely cares about each and every student at LES. She believes in all kids and inspires them to reach their optimal level of achievement. She has a true passion for teaching and really creates a classroom environment full of life and energy. Whenever passing by Ms. Griffith’s room, her students are always actively engaged in various activities throughout the classroom. She ceaselessly comes up with activities her students enjoy while furthering their own understanding in a creative manner. Her approach to allowing her students to be self-motivated is very similar to the Montessori Method of education. It is not uncommon for her students to speak about the excitement that they experience when learning in her classroom. Ms. Griffith is continuously creating a fun learning environment where students do audacious activities such as writing math problems on their desks even though the school administration jokingly disapproves of this instructional practice.
Ms. Griffith doesn’t stop being inspiring and engaging when the dismissal bell rings at the end of the day. She is involved in numerous after school activities including the Girls on the Run program, elementary cross country, 21st Century tutoring, Literacy Night, Queen City Classic Chess Tournament, and much more. Ms. Griffith is constantly stepping up to ensure that our students receive the best educational experience possible. She has also stepped up in a leadership role when presenting her questioning technique strategies at the new teacher meetings. Ms. Griffith has been an integral part of many of the great things happening at LES. It is a true pleasure to have her as a 2nd grade teacher at Lincoln Elementary School where she Inspires, Engages, and Grows each of her students.
