My name is Tara Griffith! I am beginning my 18th year in education and my 2nd year in Barren County. In addition to serving as the Librarian for Austin Tracy, I am a District Curriculum Resource Teacher and will also be working with Barren County High, Trojan Academy, and College Street Campus in that capacity.
My husband, Jeff, is a teacher at Head Football Coach at Barren County High. We have a 14 year-old dachshund named Tanner and a 10 year-old cocker spaniel named Sadie. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family & friends, traveling, and going to sporting events ... I'm a huge football fan and love going to high school, college, & pro games!!
My previous experience in education includes: 5 years teaching High School Health, PE, Arts & Humanities Dance, Driver's Education, Biology, AP Biology, and Environmental Science; 2 years teaching 6th & 8th grade Science; 2 years as a Middle School Librarian; 5 years as an Elementary Librarian and Technology Integration Specialist; 2 years as an Elementary & Middle School District Instructional Leader; and 1 year as a District Curriculum Resource Teacher.
I'm excited about working with both students and teachers in Barren County this year. If you have questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me.
