Griffin Teacher Named NHL Teacher of the Month
Congratulations to Griffin Middle School teacher Christie Danielli who was named a nominee for the 2021-22 NHL/NHLPA Most Valuable Teacher. She was eligible for this recognition after also being named the Dallas Stars Teacher of the Month in October 2021.
Danielli is in her seventh year teaching with Frisco ISD and promotes STEM education at every opportunity. Her favorite part about STEM education is the immediate real world connection that students can relate back to their studies. She loves seeing
students make the connection between understanding math and science and random things they love, like hockey! Vote for Danielli to win at NHL.com/MVT.
