Hello! I am blessed to be teaching second grade at Sanford Elementary! Although I have never lived in Van Alstyne, my parents have lived here for over 25 years, so I know how fabulous of a place it is!
I grew up in Alabama until I was eleven. I spent the rest of my childhood in Lucas, Texas, and graduated from Allen High School. I graduated from SMU with a BA in history and a specialization in Elementary Education. I have a MS in Educational Technology Leadership from Texas A&M Commerce. I taught first grade for 6 years, and then I took time off to be with my children until they began school. I returned to teaching in 2011 and have been teaching second grade ever since.
My husband Mark and I have four loving kids and three adorable shih-tzu puppies. In addition to teaching and spending time with my family, I enjoy the outdoors, exercising, organizing, journaling and exploring the latest educational technology tool.
Teaching has always been a passion of mine because I love facilitating students to become lifelong learners by providing a variety of learning opportunities to meet the needs of all students. Parent-Teacher communication is essential to making this happen. Please feel free to contact me and to follow our class on Twitter @edu_croft!
