Mrs. Ashley Griffin's Class

Hi! I am Mrs. Griffin. Some students may know me as Ms. Long as I got married over the summer! I am the Junior High and High School Math teacher and High School Chemistry teacher. In addition to my classes, I am Junior Beta Sponsor and Junior Class Sponsor.  My teaching philosophy is that every student is capable of expanding their understanding and reaching their full potential. I expect my students to have a growth mindset and know that their knowledge knows no bounds. No goal is too big and no accomplishment too small for my students. I am looking forward to a great school year and am excited to see my students overcome any obstacle put in their way!
A Little About Me
I have a Bachelor's degree from Southeast Missouri State University in Biology. For two years, I attended a doctoral program in Microbiology at Indiana University. During my graduate school, I realized there was one thing that I really enjoyed and it was teaching my Biology lab. During undergraduate, I tutored students in Chemistry and loved helping my students succeed, but also seeing those 'Eureka!' moments where everything clicked. I chose to switch careers and become a teacher, a choice that I am so happy with.
