Hello! My name is Brandy Griggs, and I am the Assistant Principal at East Elementary. I am a graduate of Blytheville High School. I obtained my Associates Degree from Mississippi County Community College and proceeded to graduate from Arkansas State University with a B.S. in Elementary Education. After teaching at South Pemiscot for three years, I earned my M.S. in Educational Administration.
I have only been Assistant Principal for two years, but I have been a Bulldog for nineteen years! I have taught in several different areas of elementary including Sixth grade, Third grade, Title reading, Gifted and Talented, and Computer class. Interestingly, my teaching career began within the South Pemiscot School District, and I have never wanted to teach or work in any other district!
My husband, Tim, and I own and operate a farming operation. We have one son, Reyn, who is a sophomore at South Pem. We also have a dog named LuLu that keeps us all entertained! I absolutely love the beach and the lake. I go any chance I get to either place. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, watching the Razorbacks, and going to watch the Cardinals in St. Louis! For the past thirteen years, I have also given swimming lessons during the summer months. I suppose teaching and working with children is exactly what I was meant to do with my life. I love my job, and I hope to one day proudly retire from a district that has given so much to me!
