    Welcome 2nd grade Hawks!  My name is Carla Griffin!  This year you will be a Goldfish!  I'm so excited to be a part of the Hillside 2nd Grade Team. 

    This is my sixth year in Loudoun county.  This will be my fifth year at Hillside Elementary.  This is my 18th year teaching elementary school.  I've taught predominately in kindergarten, but have also taught Pre-K and 1st grade. 

    I have three beautiful children and we live in Leesburg.  I'm originally from Long Island New York.  I love to spend time outside riding my bike or walking on the W&OD trail.  When I have free time I love to find a quiet place to read.  I have my Masters in Elementary Education from Dowling College in New York. 

    Teaching is my passion.  I love creating lifelong learners who are excitied to explore new ideas. Seeing the excitment and joy in my students eyes when they learn something new is uplifting.  I look forward to a wonderful school year!
