    Hello! My name is Dori Petriella. I am thrilled to be your child's 1st grade teacher! I have been teaching for 16 years and the last 10 years at Griggs Road.  I have so much planned for us, and I know it will be a fantastic year!  A little about me: I was born and raised in a smal town in New Hampshire and attended college at Appalachian State University. In my free time, I enjoy gardening, cooking and relaxing with my family. Our family loves to spend time outdoors grilling out and going to football and baseball games. We cheer on the Cleveland Indians and New England Patriots. My husband loves to hunt and we all enjoy fishing and traveling. I also enjoy crafting and collecting seashells at the beach, but my true passion is teaching! Our family has two daughters who will also be part of the Griggs Road family this year. Ryann is 10 and will be in 5th grade and Emmy is 7 and in 2nd grade. We have a black lab named Murphy and just welcomed a yellow lab puppy named Maggie! We also have 12 chickens.  I look forward to a wonderful year together in first grade.
