Andrew (AJ) Griffith

6th Grade Teacher
Social Studies Teacher
Odyssey of the Mind Coordinator

Born and raised in Fort Collins I grew up in Poudre School District and loved it. I worked in summer camps and elementary schools before landing at Lincoln Middle School in 2015. In 2022 my wife and I left Lincoln to take over Young Peoples Learning Center, a local child care facility that my parents started 45 years prior. However, I missed Lincoln so much that I am back (in a limited capacity) to continue to teach Social Studies. 

My lovely wife, Jordie Griffith, taught the ILS program for 3 years at Lincoln, but now works full time at our business. We have two young children, Jaxon and Gracelyn who plan to be future Lancers!

Aside from teaching I also coach Odyssey of the Mind (OM) at Lincoln. OM is a great opportunity for kids to use creativity to solve problems and work together to learn great 21st century skills. I also run a snowboard/ski trip for LMS students, and COPACK trips in the summer.
