Music Guest of Honor: Tim Griffin
Tim Griffin taught all subjects in Title-1 elementary schools in Los Angeles for 18 years before giving up his tenure to start Griffin Education Solutions, better known as GriffinEd. He loves writing and sharing new music with kids and seeing how they not only get excited about the STEM and other subjects we teach, but actually perform better on standards-based assessments of their knowledge and vocabulary when they work with our music. Tim has performed to great hilarity and edification for the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the National Science Teachers’ Association, the California Science Teachers’ Association, Mensa, dozens of science fiction & filk conventions, plus a few hundred schools, libraries, museums, and other places of learning. In 2014, Tim won the Pegasus Award for best songwriter/ composer.
