Mrs. Yanilsa Griffin
I am Sra. Yanilsa Griffin and I am really excited to be teaching your kiddos at Lakeview. This is my second year at Lakeview but, it my 7th year teaching. This year, I will be teaching Spanish 1.
I was born in Puerto Rico, but my family relocated to Irving, TX when I was a teenager. After high school, Go Cards Go, I attended UNT and earned my bachelor's degree in English with a minor in Spanish. I am currently seeking my master's degree in Spanish and I am really looking forward to completing this next milestone. My husband, John, and I have 4 children and about 7 years ago, we took in a half sibling, so now we say we have 5 kiddos. Our youngest 2 are at TCHS and keep us busy with cheer and soccer. Should the kids activities' not have us running all over town, I will either be reading, spending time with family/friends or driving through the metroplex pretending I'm a foodie.
As an LISD parent, I am thrilled to be part of an awesome district.
