Meet Mr. Albright!
Hello! I was born and raised in Winnemucca, Nevada and love everything about Northern Nevada. I made the move to Reno six years ago, and graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno (Go Wolfpack!) with a Bachelors of Science degree in Secondary Education Social Studies. This is my 3rd year teaching ELA/Social Studies as a Thunderbolt, I have also taught U.S. History at Dilworth Middle School, and U.S. Government/History at Reed High School. I am a very active person who loves hiking, video games, reading, and watching/playing basketball/football. Please feel free to send me an email if you have any questions. I am looking forward to an amazing school year!
Meet Mrs. Griffith
Hello! I am a California transplant married to a Nevadan. We have a household that consist of three children, ages 7, 10, and 12. No pets yet, but we are trying to talk my husband into getting a dog. My oldest attends Sky Ranch as a 7th grader this year. I grew up in a large household of 9. I have five brothers, a sister, and numerous foster siblings. Most of my extended family live in California, close to the ocean.
My BA degree is from San Jose State University (SJSU). After teaching at a private school, I attended SJSU again to receive a teaching credential and a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I have experience teaching elementary (1st, 2nd, 5th) and middle school (6th-8th) in CA. As a previous WCSD sub, I am excited to continue teaching full time for the 2021-2022 school year.
These are a few of my favorite things:
Jamaica, Vietnam, South Korea, Mexico, and Canada are a few places I've enjoyed. My favorite place to visit (thus far) is Maui. I love snorkeling in Maui.
Dixit, Set, Cranium, Clue, Relative Insanity, Dictionary, and more
Arts & Crafts
Painting, Decal Designs, Home Décor, and more
Outside of Covid-19, we usually have 30+ family members gather for holidays and celebrations. I enjoy going to Wild Island with my family and any time we are able to go to the beach. Our kids love to play "hide-n-seek" in the dark.
I am looking forward to teaching Math and Science this year at Sky Ranch! I hope students will learn to love learning as much as I do.
