Payton Seals

My name is Payton Seals, and I am originally from Effingham County. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Child and Family Development with an emphasis in Family Services from Georgia Southern University. I am married to a GA Alum, and we live in Brunswick. I enjoy going to the beach, game nights, and trying new restaurants. I love working with students to become the best version of themselves and see their full potential. CIS is special because we get to focus solely on relationship building and ensuring that every student has a safe place at school. I will be primarily working with 10th and 12th graders this school year. I cannot wait to see what we accomplish together!

Laura Griner

Hi! I am Laura Griner, and I will be working primarily with our 9th and 11th grade students. My husband and I recently moved to Brunswick from Athens where we have three sons at UGA. We also have a daughter in Atlanta. She's a Clemson girl. I graduated from Auburn University with a degree in history and have taught high school social studies as well as working as a Family Engagement Specialist and Community School Organizer in Clarke County. What I love about CIS is the opportunity to build one-on-one relationships with students and really get to know how to help them be successful in school and beyond. I'm excited to be at GA and Go Terrors!
