On a personal note, William says that his biggest accomplishment is becoming a father of two intelligent, energetic, and amazing young boys.
Hi my name is Litia Sistrunk. I have a B.S. degree from Auburn University Montgomery. Since graduating, I have devoted my time to helping children in foster care, however I have always had a love for teaching. After an opportunity to teach English in China, I knew that I should continue in my calling. So I am honored to join the education team at the Griffith Centers for Children alongside pursuing my Master of Education in Special Education.
I believe that to teach is to touch a life forever so I am excited for the opportunity to continue to impact lives.
My name is Nicole Emmert. This is my second year teaching but fourth year working in a school. I love teaching and helping my students to succeed. I hope to help all of my students to grow in each subject area as well as in their social emotional needs as well.

I am the High School Science teacher! I am beginning my fourth year at the Griffith Centers! I started as a Youth Treatment Counselor on the Rockies Lodge and then transitioned to Education where I was a Teachers Assistant for a year and a crisis management specialist for another year. This is my second year teaching science and I love all the STEM labs I get to do with my students! In my spare time, I coach girls basketball at a local high school. I enjoy watching these kids grow, overcome adversity and be successful!
