WASA Women Leaders: Annie Griffin
Washakie County School District #2
The Wyoming Association of School Administrators would like to take this opportunity to shine the spotlight on the impactful women leaders that we have in our association. Our association is proud of their many accomplishments and we wanted to share a bit about them with you.
This is the first year that Annie Griffin has been at the helm of Washakie #2 in Ten Sleep, WY, and she has hit the ground running! One of her first major accomplishments has been the process of designing and planning of a new school, one of the most exciting superintendent tasks. They are planning on breaking ground in April and the outcome will be fantastic for the students, staff, and community of Ten Sleep, as it will continue to be the hub of the community.
One of Annie’s passions is literacy and her litearacy project keeps her connected to the work. Each day she is reminded that the community, students, teachers, and principals need her leadership and guidance. She continues to find joy by her regularly scheduled visits to the PK-6 classrooms to share a good book with the students. Her modelling of literacy and creating excitement for reading by providing books each month for her students is rewarding and keeps her bucket full.
Mrs. Griffin finds great value in the WASA organization. “WASA means a great wealth of easily accessible knowledge as well as comradery! Through this organization I stand beside fellow advocates for education as well as so many mentors.” We are happy to have you as part of our organization.
If you cannot find Mrs. Griffin in the classrooms in her school, she might be out on the golf course or on a boat somewhere as those are two of her activities that she enjoys. If she wasn’t a superintendent, you could find her in the educational consultant world as she believes that education opens so many doors for people and enjoys providing positive encouragement and coaching to educators.
Thank you Annie Griffin for your involvement in our association and we welcome you on your first year. You are a true advocate for students!
