Hello, Crawford families! I am excited to be teaching your child this year. I graduated from Arkansas Tech University with a degree in elementary education in the spring of 2021.  Outside of school, some of my favorite things are, spending time with my husband, Goldendoodle puppy, and family.  I am looking forward to an amazing year of learning for both your child as well as myself!

Hello! I graduated from Arkansas Tech University where I received my Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education in 2015. In 2018, I obtained my master's degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. I have been teaching for six years, but this will be my first year to be a part of the Crawford Elementary family! Besides teaching second grade, my favorite things to do are reading mystery novels, traveling, acting, singing, and spending time with my family and friends. I have a baby son named Oscar and three dog children named Atticus, Elvis, and Molly. I can't wait to start this incredible year with your second grader!

Hello! I am excited to be your child's teacher this year! We are going to have so much fun together and make an abundance of memories. I graduated from the University of Arkansas - Fort Smith with a Bachelors of Science degree in Early Childhood Education. I began my teaching career in August 2017, in my hometown of Greenwood, AR. I previously taught Kindergarten for the last five years, but I am very much looking foward to teaching 2nd grade as a Crawford Eagle. Besides teaching, my favorite things to do are spend time with my fiance on the row crop farm he helps manage and exploring Russellville. I love drinking coffee, reading a good book, antique shopping, and spending lots of time with family and friends. I can't wait to begin this exciting adventure with your wonderful 2nd grader!
