Mrs. Robyn Drew

I am Mrs. Drew and I am presently entering my 11th year educating elementary students. I completed my BS and MS degrees at Auburn University in Montgomery, Alabama. I also completed post-graduate work toward Leadership Certification at Auburn Montgomery and completed one year as a member of the Leadership and Learning in Organizations cohort at the Peabody College of Education at Vanderbilt University. I am a 4th-grade educator and love teaching all subjects.  I have a passion for mathematics and reading as the foundation for all learning. I have been married to a wonderfully supportive husband, Edward, for 38 years.  In addition to the awesome children I teach each day, my greatest joys are my daughter and son-in-law, Cora and Tim Walker, son, John and grandson, Julian. I enjoy reading, all outdoor activities and am a committed runner and tennis enthusiast.

Ms. Troi Butler-Gray

"Greetings 4th grade students and parents!  I am Mrs. Butler-Gray, but the students can call me Ms. Gray.  Teaching has become my second career, though I wish it had been my first.  I earned my Bachelors in Elementary Education from the University of Missouri-St. Lous, and started my career and first year of teaching as a 5th grade teacher virtually and congruent in the Hazelwood School District for the 2020-2021 school year.  Therefore, I am stepping into my 2nd year of teaching at Griffith Intermediate and first year for Ferg-Flor.   I am so excited, because I think this year is going to be full of new experiences and growth for all of our students.  My goal is and will always be to assist in producing productive citizens.
