Alyssa Griffin, Social Science

I cannot wait to begin year three at Independence High School! Go Tigers!


Before working at Independence, I was a teacher at Rock Ridge High School. Before that, I worked at Riverside High School and completed my student teaching at Albemarle High School in Charlottesville. I am very excited to stay put for a long time here at Indy! I graduated from the University of Virginia with a Bachelor of Arts in History and a Master's Degree in Social Science Secondary Education. I also graduated from Broad Run High School, and completed all my years of grade school in Loudoun County. I am very excited to be back teaching where it all began, and cannot wait for the year ahead!
