    Welcome new kindergarten Hawks!  My name is Carla Griffin!  This year you will be a Goldfish!  I'm so excited to be a part of the Hillside Kindergarten Team. 

    This is my fifth year in Loudoun county.  This will be my fourth year at Hillside Elementary.  Four years ago I was a kindergarten teacher at Steuart Weller Elementary School.  This is my 17th 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 kindergarten 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.  

    Mrs. Lopez and I will be working together this year.  We look forward to a wonderful school year!
