Geography teacher Nicholas Griffith has been named the Seventh Grade Teacher of the Year.

“I became a teacher because I love working with kids and I wanted to do something with my life that I feel makes a difference in my students lives, Griffith said.

He started teaching seven years ago, 2015-2016, all with Union.

“This year has been so amazing for me, Griffith said, explaining “it started off winning my building’s HOPE Hero award for September and then being chosen as Teacher of the Game one week and a Teacher of Impact for Homecoming for a former student. It has truly been an amazing and humbling experience. This year has its challenges due to COVID but it feels more normal than last year and that is very encouraging.”

Griffith attended Northeastern State University and earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology. “I became alternatively certified to teach in 2015,” he said. “I am certified in U.S History, Government, Economics, Oklahoma History, and Geography.  I am currently seeking ESL certification.
