Music that Describes Lanelle

Lanelle Griffith was nominated by her principal, Theresa Chisolm.

Ms. Griffith has been teaching for over 25 years. During those years, she has touched thousands of lives. Ms. Griffith has made a difference to the students she has taught and the staff members she has worked with over the years. Ms. Griffith goes above and beyond what is expected of her. She has such a positive attitude and makes everyone smile when they see her. 

"Ms. Griffith has worked here at the alternative school for the last three years," explains Chisolm. "She makes students feel like they are special. Students who have been moved from their home schools for whatever reason are made to feel like they belong and are important. She leaves post-it notes on every child's desk saying something positive every day. Students look forward to their personal notes every day. We are blessed to have her as part of our team."
