North Platte High School | Spanish
My name is Connie Griffin. I have been teaching Spanish for 22 years. I learned to speak Spanish in Chile where I spent 18 months as a missionary in my early 20’s. I later graduated from North Central College in Naperville, IL with a Bachelor’s degree in Spanish and Education. I have taught all levels of Spanish in Illinois, Texas, Kansas and now, North Platte, NE.
My husband and I moved to North Platte with our youngest daughter, Colleen in the summer of 2017. My husband runs his own remodeling business and Colleen is attending Mid Plains Community College and is studying to be a Medical Lab Technician. Our older children are married and have given us a grandson and granddaughter so far. We love spending time with family and exploring Nebraska.
I love teaching here at North Platte High School. Our Spanish program gives students the opportunity to learn Spanish and explore the many cultures of Spanish-speaking countries. This knowledge will help prepare students be successful in their future beyond high school.
