Meet the Teacher

Hi! My name is Mrs. Jennifer Griggs. I am the Enrichment teacher for Kindergarten and First Grade. Additionally, during the summer months, I support the Brandywine School District through teaching in their 12-month Entitlement program. Prior to teaching at Aspira Academy, I taught kindergarten in the general education classroom at both Red Clay School District and Christina School District. Most recently, I earned my Master’s Degree in Special Education from Wilmington University.  From 2011-2015, I completed course work culminating with my eligibility for a certification to teach students with Severe Disabilities and Autism. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time at the beach, with my bunnies and dogs, and riding my horses. Please feel free to contact me at [email protected] at any time.
