Thomas & Vickie

Hello, I am Vickie Griffith, the Principal of Ingram Elementary School. I am proud to be back in Ferris ISD, where my education began.  I am originally from Ferris where I had the privilege of going to Kindergarten through third grade right here at Hazel Ingram Elementary School.  Currently I live in Scurry, Texas with my husband, Thomas.  We have three grown children: Kaytlin, Tyler, and John-Thomas as well as two daughter-in-laws, Brenna and Maggie and one son-in-law, Gunnar.  I am also "Bubbie"(aka; grandmother) to granddaughters, Georgia, Wyoming, and Barbara Kay and one grandson Leif, with another grandson on the way in November.   

I have been in education for 27 years.  I have taught 1st grade for eight years, 2nd grade for five and a half years, and seventh grade for a half year. I have been the principal here at Hazel Ingram Elementary School for the past three years and assistant principal 1 year.  Prior to returning to Ferris, I was a principal with Scurry-Rosser ISD. 

Before becoming a teacher and administrator, I was a campus secretary, nurse’s aide, para-professional and bus driver, all for Ferris ISD. So as you can see, Family, Education, and Kids are my life! I am honored to be back home and a Ferris Yellowjacket once more!

If I can ever be of service to you, please do not hesitate to contact me. 

I look forward to seeing you at Hazel Ingram Elementary School, "Where the Yellowjacket Tradition Begins."  Take care!
