The Tutoring Center, Kansas City MO 



Congratulations to Ms. Bailey Griffin, nominated by 5th grader Reggie McKeithen Jr., for being selected as this month’s TTC Person of Influence! Ms. Griffin is a 4th grade teacher at Shoal Creek Elementary School, which truly demonstrates how much of an influence she had on Reggie last year!

Reggie nominated Ms. Griffin because when he was having trouble understanding a subject, she offered a one-on-one lesson. “She worked with me until I got it, and it made me feel happy when I got it,” Reggie said. “I appreciate how she cares for me.”

Ms. Griffin has a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from the University of Central Missouri, and she’s currently working on her master’s degree in literacy. She became a teacher because she loves kids. She believes in building a relationship with each student in order to have a bigger impact on their learning.

Ms. Griffin was raised in Liberty, MO, and she and her family still get together every Friday to share dinner. In her free time, which isn’t much between teaching and pursing her master’s degree, Ms. Griffin enjoys painting and reading. Her favorite series is Harry Potter. If she could have any superpower, she would love to be Mary Poppins. While Ms. Griffin doesn’t currently have any pets, she dreams of being a Golden Retriever mom.

Thank you, Ms. Griffin, for all you do to enrich the lives of our children!
