Welcome to Mrs. Griffin's Classroom!
5th Grade English Language Arts
Koontz Intermediate School
My name is Ashley Griffin and I am delighted to be here at Koontz Intermediate! I teach 5th grade Language Arts and Social Studies. After graduating from Elon University in 2005 with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education (K-6), I spent my first two years in education teaching fourth graders with Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools. While teaching my first year, I obtained my Master's degree from Appalachian State University also in Elementary Education (K-6). Afterward, I moved to Davidson County Schools where I taught sixth grade English Language Arts and Social Studies before moving to the Asheville area. Throughout my educational aspirations, I have also obtained a Middle Grades (6-9) license in Social Studies as well as a Reading Specialist (K-6) license.
On the weekends and during free time (when available), I enjoy spending time outdoors, hiking and fishing as well as spending time with family and friends.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me!
