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!
