Hi! My name is Maria Griswold and I teach both English 1 and Theatre Arts classes. While this is my first year as a teacher at Del Mar, I am no stranger to this campus. I graduated from Del Mar back in 2012 and could not be happier to be here as staff! I received a bachelors in Theatre Arts Education, as well as an English Credential, from San Jose State University. Go Spartans! My biggest goal for myself is to get our school to have a strong theatre program, which will encourage our students to pursue curiosity and learning through acting, musical theatre, and tech programs. One of the reasons I wanted to become a teacher was to help students realize their full potential in academics with a strong support system behind them.
