ADVISOR FOR KINDERGARTEN-8TH GRADE
Hi! My name is Mrs. Baldwin and I have been a school principal for the past 12 years! Before that I was an elementary school teacher for 10+ years, and I love teaching and learning. I graduated from Andrews University in 1993 with a BA in Elementary Education with minors in Reading and Science, and completed my Masters in Education in 2004 from Capella University. My passion is to serve the Lord through education with all my heart, soul, and mind! I enjoy being in nature, walking, reading, camping, fishing, and spending time with my husband and two children. I have a beautiful Golden Retriever named Gladdy, a cat named Simba, and some chickens! I am delighted to be the K-8 Director at Griggs International Academy.

He has worked at Griggs since 2002, giving him a broad and rich background that helps him teach, advise, and guide students. His psychological and law enforcement background enables him to understand different personalities which enhances communication between multi-cultural educational groups and a diverse student population with unique challenges.
"I really enjoy forming relationships with non-traditional groups as well as traditional learners. It is a feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction to be part of a student's journey to academic success! My duty is to help and my goal is to provide whatever is necessary to aid in the completion of the Griggs International Academy High School Program. My desire to help students is indescribable and I hope to be able to do so for many years to come."
