Degrees and Certifications:

Alyssa Griffin, Social Science

I cannot wait to begin my sixth year teaching and my fifth year at Independence High School!

Before working at Independence, I worked at Rock Ridge High School, as well as Riverside High School. 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!
