I had him my freshman year when I was in English honors and his class was a great introduction to high school now that I'm a senior. He was very chill and funny but also serious and respectable. His class was always fun and never boring. 5/5 man
best teacher in my high school years.
This teacher loves to talk about how wonderful his life is and makes you feel guilty for not being able to live up to the "great" accomplishments he's made. He doesn't seem to understand that not everybody was given the same opportunities in life he was given and seems to think it's okay to tease people that aren't as well off as he is.
One of my favorite teachers for English. His life lessons and stories provide a great impact on thought and help teach a lesson. He also knows the method into writing effectively, which drastically improved my essay writing for other classes.
Mr. Griffin is a wonderful teacher. x) He still remembers me and I'm currently a junior, hahah. I thought he was inspiring whenever he explained his quotes and whenever I needed help, he was willing to assist me. He's also super humorous and a surfer! Gotta love surfers. :D
Mr. Griffin is a true example of an exemplary teacher. He fully encompasses the lessons by teaching more than the standards and creates a fun learning environment with his wit. His tough grading on the essays makes one all the more better of a writer. A freshman could not wish for a better English teacher than Mr. Griffin. His life lessons provoke thought and leave an imprint on those who listen. He definitely prepares a student for high school while remaining on the student's side.
He was always a charming teacher. Do well always and don't slack off!
As Mr. Griffin would say, "I don't GIVE you your grade--I just record what your work adds up to." With that in mind, do your homework and do well on tests and it's an easy A. If you slack and get a bad grade, Mr. Griffin probably won't offer any sympathy. He is a caring and thought-provoking teacher who'll leave an impression on most students. "Respect" is an idea stressed in his class and it's a relatively simple request to adhere to. Mr. Griffin is one helluva teacher, so treat him well! Good luck!
this guy. BEST TEACHER EVERRRR. serious. he expects you to do your best, which isnt asking too much, but he gets it, no one is perfect. Chill & laid back like no other but he tells it like it is, which is wayyy respected. Class is NEVER boring. AND his quotes are prettyyyyy AWESOME and some of them really stick w/ you, if you really pay attention. He's got a lot of experience to share. This guy knows whats up for sure.
it's not an easy A class but i loved his talks and all of his quotes.
So, I see all these kids from fourth period engish. WHOO!! I love mr. griffin. He does like us to be so great at writing, but it's okay. He is so good at his craft, I'm so happy I got him this year. <3
he is the best english teacher ever! i loved his class freshman year. i think he really knows what he's talking about. and his lectures and weekly quotes were amazing too. when i did well on an essay, i was really proud because i knew that he graded them harshly. i really miss his class
I JUST WISH HE DID NOT WANT US TO BE PROFESSION WRITERS, HE IS HARSH IN THAT MATTER. GRADES EASYS TOO HARSH. DUDE, LEAN BACK, WE ARE FRESHMEAT, NOT PORK CHOPS (ONE ONE NOW WHAT SONN):)) HI MR. GRIFFIN!
i love this teacher!the best ever. he can grade harsh, but as a freshman you'll have the time of your life there. NO doubt, he rocks! Go 4th period H English. class of 2011
the best teacher at grove without a doubt. his class is bomb..pretty easy if you do your work and way fun...if anything he is the most entertaining teacher ever. nothing is a surprise once you walk through his door. hes one of the nicest guys ever too...hes way laid back, chill, and pretty leeniant.
Mister Griffin :] He is one of the best teachers at GGHS :] You are awesome! :] Your one of my favorite teachers :D
He is a good teacher and a goofy guy, but often goes a little too far with what he believes or doesn't believe-to the point of suppressing the beliefs of others
Griffin rocks -- between him and any other English teacher (besides LCS)... he wins; no contest.
Griffin is THEE absolute best! Ya gotta love having a surfer for a teacher! :)
good english teacher and newspaper advisor. really funny but also has erratic mood swings. has pink eye and sometimes cusses you out. but he's still cool. :)
Mr. Griffin is eccentric. He's a fine orator. Just do his work and he will show u the respect u deserves.
Mr. Griffin is a great teacher :) I wish he could just stand in front of the class and entertain us.
