Mrs. Jennifer McCool-Griggs

Hello!  My name is Jennifer McCool-Griggs, although my students just call me Mrs. Griggs.  Welcome to my third grade class!  I have been teaching third grade for eight years.  This is my fifth year here at Southwest Elementary School as a teacher.  I love our Southwest community.  All of my children have attended this school!

I graduated in 1994 with a B.S. in Early Childhood Education from Virginia Tech.  I taught 3rd grade in Virgina at St. Francis of Assisi School for 4 years before becoming a stay at home mom.  I stayed at home to raise my four children for quite a while before deciding that I missed being in the classroom and needed to get back into education.  In 2015, I started substitute teaching in Onslow County.  I was a long-term subsitute in kindergarten, fifth grade and an exceptional children's class.  

I am so thrilled to be teaching third grade.  It is one of the most delightful ages to teach!
