About the Blogger:
My name is Elizabeth Ernst Griffon, and I'm from Monroe, LA. I'm married to the most wonderful man, and we have two little boys who keep us busy! I am an English teacher and a yoga teacher, and I have zero free time. I'm also a graduate of the M.A.T. Program at Louisiana Tech, but it took me awhile to get to this point.
All of my life I wanted to be a veterinarian like my grandfather. I graduated high school, and majored in Animal Science at Louisiana Tech. I also began working at a veterinary hospital in West Monroe. However, after working there for an extended period of time, I realized that veterinary medicine is not my passion. I love animals, don't get me wrong (I have 7 rescued pets, I foster cats and dogs periodically, and I'm the co-sponsor of the Paws Club at OPHS), but my future is not in veterinary medicine. During my undergraduate classes I had the opportunity to be a teaching assistant and tutor for several classes, and discovered a love of teaching.
I graduated with a degree in Animal Science in 2011 with quite a few English electives (it's my favorite subject). In 2013 I had the opportunity to begin teaching at Ouachita Christian School in Monroe. I taught English II there for three years, got into the M.A.T. Program at Tech, and began my career in education. In 2016 I made the jump to public school, and I teach Speech and Creative Writing at Ouachita Parish High School in Monroe, and I absolutely love it. I couldn't see myself doing anything else.
Nice to meet you, and welcome to my blog!
