About Mrs. Graff
I am Mrs. Graff and I teach BIM I (Business Information Management I) and Career Preparation I and II.
I have been married to my husband, Chad, for over 28 years and we have two children, Darby and Garrett. Darby is a 2012 HHS graduate, a 2015 Texas A&M graduate and is in her second season as the Head Volleyball coach at ETBU. Garrett is a 2016 HHS graduate, a 2019 ETBU graduate and just started working for D R Horton Home Builders.
I graduated from East Texas Baptist University in 1994 with a Bachelor's of Science in Education degree and a major in Secondary Business Education. I added a certification for Elementary Education in 2004. Before teaching full time, I spent 16 years in the business sector as an insurance representative.
This is my seventh year at HHS. Before coming to HHS, I spent 9 years teaching third grade at Hallsville Intermediate/East Elementary.
I LOVE teaching at HHS and especially enjoy teaching BIM as I believe it truly covers skills that are essential for success in all areas of life - from maintaining personal information to producing quality academic documents to eventually being successful in a chosen career field. This year, I am excited about the added opportunity to work with our students who are participating in our Career Preparation Program. Helping students take all they have learned in school and apply it in a work experience is what teaching is all about. I have often said, the best part of teaching is when one of my students comes back and tells me how he/she used what they learned in my classroom in another part of their life!
