JUDITH MARIE GRIFFIN AKIN
ACCOMPLISHMENTS AND LIFE EXPERIENCES
*Private schools: I attended private schools from kinder through 12th grade. I had a very formal education and this help me continue with my education.
*Death of mother: My mother was in an accident when I was 21. This really made me grow up and appreciate life a little more.
*Teacher certificate: I went back to school for 2 1/2 more years to get my teaching certificate. It was a rough time financially for my new family, but it paid off in the end. I estimate I have taught over 2300 students in the last 20 years!
*Marriage, children, grandchild, soccer mom: Obviously getting married, have children and a grandchild have shaped my life. Being a "soccer mom" gave me wonderful memories with my family from swim team, baseball, Sunday school, and, of course, soccer!
