Mr. Nathanael Griffis

I have taught for fifteen years from the college lecture hall, middle school classroom, and high school classroom. I'm passionate about learning and the English language. This is my first year at Handley High School. Before this I taught at Millbrook Highschool and in West Virginia and New York State. I've taught here in Virginia for eleven years. I have two beautiful children and numerous pets from dogs, parrots, chickens, fish and more. When I'm not reading a book or grading, I'm pushing my daughter on her swing or playing with my son. I love movies, traveling, and board games. I have taken students on overseas trips for the past 7 year going to Germany, Italy, Greece, France, Switzerland, China, Peru, Spain, and most recently Japan!
