Welcome to Second Grade!
Hi! I am Mrs. Briggs and I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year! I see second grade as a foundational time in a child's life for learning and development. I am thankful to have the opportunity to help your child grow not only academically, but socially and emotionally as well.
A little about me... I graduated from the University of Arkansas (Woo Pig Sooie!) with a dual BA and earned my M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Oklahoma (Boomer!), specializing in early literacy. I am passionate about reading and I have a diverse background in education which will prove beneficial in meeting the individual needs of my students and families. I love partnering with parents and working together towards common goals. I am married to the love of my life and we have two wonderful sons. Though I have traveled and lived in numerous places from Oklahoma to South Korea, Texas has been my happy home for over 10 years now.
I love ACA and believe firmly in its mission to provide a comprehensive education through a high level of academic instruction and high behavioral expectations. This is my fourth year teaching at ACA and my family's sixth year as Griffins.
I look forward to a wonderful 2019-2020 school year!
