Tani Griffin Earns Crystal Apple Award

Submitted by katie.kelly on Thu, 01/21/2021 - 11:02

We know that history isn’t destiny. But if anyone was clearly destined to become a teacher, Tani Griffin was. Her exceptional talent and dedication as an English teacher flows from her life-long love of language and literature. Tani discovered her love of reading early and has always cultivated that love in others around her. For example, as a teen she read books for hours on end to her younger brother, Jonathan. Tani did not know then that she was preparing him for a future Stanford education, but she’s always known that reading is foundational to academic success.
