• My name is Wendy Willard.  I received my teaching degree from High Point University. This is my fourth year teaching first grade at Griffith Elementary.   I have over twenty years teaching experience.  I have taught Pre-K through 5th grade and worked as an Assistant Director of a preschool.
     
    I am happily married to Wayne Willard, who is an electronic engineer. I have one son, Patrick, who is a sophomore in college.  We have two pugs named Zoe and Carly, who keeps us "entertained".
     
    I LOVE the color pink, going to Barnes and Noble, and reading.  I love hearing how children tell stories with such enthusiasm, seeing them lose their teeth, and watching them learn to read. First grade is a magical year in the life of a child. So much growth takes place from the beginning of the year to the end of the year, and I am so happy to be a part of that.
