About comerhull1126

Hello Students and Parents, My name is Mrs. Comer-Hull and I teach 6th grade math. This makes my 11th year at Griffin Middle School. I'm originally from the Chicago area. I've resided in Atlanta for 11 years. I attended Xavier University of Louisiana for my undergraduate degree, where I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Business Management. I later attended the University of Illinois, where I obtained my Master's degree in Education, and then began teaching in Chicago, Illinois. I come from a family of educators who've taught me that your education is everything and will take you wherever you want to go in life. I do plan to relate and instill that belief in your children. I thank you for sending your child to Griffin Middle School and look forward to working with all of you this school year.
