Welcome to Reading Recovery and Title 1!

    Hi! I am Emily Forehand.

       This is my 9th year teaching here at Griggs and in Currituck County.  After teaching 1st grade here at Griggs for two years and I am continuing my role as our Reading Recovery/Title 1 teacher. This year I will work with first graders in the Reading Recovery program and I will also serve as the Griggs Title 1 teacher. While this year will look different in many ways, I am excited to get to know your child as we navigate teaching and learning virtually. 

        After growing up in Northern Virginia, I attended Virginia Commonwealth University where I received my Bachelor of Arts in History and my Masters of Education. I taught grades 1st-5th in a number of schools in Richmond and Fairfax, VA and also in Washington D.C. I moved to Currituck from Washington D.C. after meeting my husband and we have started a family here. We are loving watching them grow in the Griggs family and the Currituck community. 

       I look forward to all the new adventures that this year will bring. Davey Martinez said it best in this quote,
