My name is Sonja Griffith.  This is my first year at BJHS and I'm excited to be here. My husband and I have lived in Madison for almost 8 years. We have two children:  Shrader is a freshman at Ole Miss and Will is an 8th grader at Discovery Middle School.  We are originally from Viriginia, but have lived in Arkansas, North Carolina, Maryland and now Alabama.  Madison is a wonderful community for children, so are staying put.

I am only teaching one block per semester.  In the afternoons, I will be an intern in the counseling centers of BJHS, DMS and Rainbow Elementary. I am currently pursuing my M.Ed. in School Counseling.  Please introduce yourself if you see me.
