Buchanan Primary is pleased to announce our 2022 Teacher of the Year, Mrs. Lindsey Griggs. A graduate from the University of West Georgia, Mrs. Griggs holds a BS.Ed. and a M.Ed. in Early Childhood Education and is currently pursuing her gifted endorsement. Her teaching career began sixteen years ago at Buchanan Primary where she has taught first and second grades. Mrs. Griggs currently teaches second grade at BPS.
Mrs. Griggs has been married to Jamie Griggs for thirteen years and they have three amazing daughters, Anna Mae, Sarah Kate, and Allie Rae. She enjoys camping, hiking, exercising, and baking. The Griggs family is very active in their church where Mrs. Griggs teaches the Pre-K and Kindergarten Sunday School class.
When talking with Mrs. Griggs about her teaching philosophy, she said, “I absolutely love teaching! I have been called to be a teacher and there is no greater peace than knowing that I am doing exactly what The Lord has called me to do. My job is to show love to my students and provide a caring environment. Once I establish this, the academic part just falls into place! I honestly love and care for all of my students and they feel the same way about me. The relationship we have is mutual. We love and respect each other and therefore, lots of learning takes place in our classroom. I am so thankful and blessed to be a part of the amazing team at Buchanan Primary School!”
With Mrs. Griggs’ dedication and desire to be the best teacher possible, we are extremely pleased that she was selected to represent our school as Teacher of the Year. Congratulations, Mrs. Griggs!
