SCHOOL HIGHLIGHT iMOM is a program through Family First, a national non-profit organization based in Tampa, Florida. iMOM strives to connect moms and their kids while encouraging moms to be the best mothers they can be. We meet once/month to discuss various topics, spend time together and strengthen relationships. iMOM is a wonderful way to include the family and school connection as well. Blythe-Bower held their first iMOM morning in September with over 120 moms in attendance!
My name is Sue Griffith and I am in my 15th year working as the school nurse and office staff at Blythe-Bower Elementary School. I was born and raised in England on the east coast next to the North Sea. I attended a grammar school and then went on to Nursing School for 2 years. In England, nurses are part of the work force as they train, gaining experience in all areas of nursing with classroom work, exams, and practical assessments throughout. I took my American Nursing Board Exams while working in a hospital in Montana. I met my husband, Dave, when he was stationed in the U.K. with the United States Air Force. We have been married 34 years and have 4 wonderful children. We have lived in the U.K., Germany, and the U.S. I enjoy planting flowers, walking, biking, and being outdoors. The beach is one of my favorite places. Striving to help children stay healthy so they can do and be their best at school is my goal as a school nurse. I am very thankful to have a job I love and work among such a special group of people at Blythe-Bower.
