Griffith served as a cluster dean for 10 years, helped develop the Life Issues curriculum, taught in the summer African Institute as well as in Kenya and Tanzania through the International Academic Partnership, and served as advisor to CAMD cultural clubs. Her commitment to underserved students began when she spent summers working for MIT’s Upward Bound Program. While teaching at Boston Latin School, Griffith also worked as the Associate Director of Project LASER (Learning Activities for Science and Engineering Readiness) at Emmanuel College. She holds a B.A. from Vassar College and a M.Ed. from Cambridge College.
