Ms. Denton

 Welcome to Head Start!  I am one of three Head Start teachers at Griffin Elementary.  This year begins my 17th year of teaching at Griffin and my 16th in Head Start.  I received my Bachelor's degree from Arizona State University in 1999.  I grew up just 40 miles down the road, in Gilmer, where I currently reside and commute from daily. 

  I believe that working with young children is what I was put on this earth to do.  I truly love my profession and feel blessed to have a career that allows me to interact with and impact our world's most precious asset.  I am excited to be a facilitator in my students' students' learning process and hope to help them develop a love for learning that they will carry with them throughout their lives.  The best part is that there is never a dull moment in a Head Start classroom and I learn from them on a daily basis, as well.

   Our classroom is located in the kindergarten hallway of our campus in room 29.  My classroom assistant is Jeremy Bowie.  You may contact me by email or telephone (903) 262 -2310
