catWelcome to Our Class!

    Hello!  My name is Annette Markham, and I am your child's 3rd grade Language Arts/Social Studies teacher.  I grew up here in Currituck and in the Albemarle area (Elizabeth City and Weeksville).  This will be my 27th year teaching at Griggs Elementary. Even though I grew up some in Pasquotank County, I attended public schools in the Currituck district from grades Kindergarten through 12th grade.  I continued my education at Elizabeth City State University and graduated with a BA in Elementary Education and then attended East Carolina University for my Master's Degree in Elementary Education. 
    I am married with two beautiful daughters and one handsome son!  Hayley, my oldest, is 22 years old and is attending East Carolina University. She graduates this December!!   My youngest daughter, Ava, is 13 years old and is in 8th grade at CCMS.  My son, Gray, is the youngest at 10 years old and attends NEAAAT School as a 5th grader in Elizabeth City. 
    I enjoy spending my free time with my husband and children.  I love to travel to the mountains of Virginia and North Carolina! (My sister and brother live there!)
    Please do not hesitate to call, message me through Class Dojo, or email me if you have any questions regarding your child's education.
