Hi!! I'm Katy Griggs. I grew up in Wylie; I was actually a Dodd Dino when I was in 4th grade. I feel very fortunate to have come full circle and teach in a community that I love. I went to University of Texas at Dallas and graduated from there with my Bachelor's Degree in 2012. I started teaching in 2015 here at Dodd in 2nd grade. My favorite thing about teaching is making connections with my students. It's like I get to make 20 new best friends every year, and that just fills my heart with so much joy. I also love getting to be there for their amazing moments. Whether it's the moment that they finally understand regrouping in addition or the moment they level up in reading, it's an absolute honor to be a part of it.
Outside of school, I am a total foodie and have a strong passion for baking. Anything to do with cupcakes or pie, I'm all about it! Also, I really enjoy singing and dancing especially to anything from the 80's or 90's; you can probably guess what my spotify playlist is always set on! I always seem to be going on some kind of hiking adventure as well. It's a blast to discover new trails and meet new people along the way!!
