Rosita Griggs, M.ED., LBSI
As the Academic Coordinator at our location in Lombard, Illinois, Rosita is tasked with igniting in our clients an excitement and an enthusiasm for learning. Rosita is a veteran educator with several noteworthy qualifications, but her biggest asset in the classroom is her unparalleled ability to connect with teens on a personal level, helping them discover their own unique intellectual skills, abilities and passions. Rosita strongly believes that every child can excel academically if they are given the right resources and a teacher who truly cares.
Academically, Rosita attended Elmhurst College in Elmhurst, Illinois, where she received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in International Cultural Studies with a focus in Education. She delved deeper into her education focus by obtaining her Master of Arts Degree in Special Education and a certification as a Learning Behavior Specialist (LBSI) from Grand Canyon University in Scottsdale, Arizona. Rosita decided to pursue teaching because of her quest to help others. She has served in both traditional and non-traditional classroom management settings. She is skilled in her ability to work with most school aged populations to facilitate an orderly and safe education experience within both large and small, as well as very personal and highly individualized settings.
Rosita affirms the reason she enjoys working for Adolescent Growth is that it grants her the opportunity to demonstrate a committed relationship to and with the student’s personal, academic, social, and developmental growth. It also renders creative enthusiasm and a drive to achieve and bring to life the amazing art form known as teaching. Rosita states, “I would love to take both my teaching and students to the next level. Lastly, I work with an amazing staff”.
The things Rosita loves to do when she is not at Adolescent Growth are sign language, cooking/baking, mentoring/coaching “Girls on The Run” program and spending adventurous moments with her cherished family.
