Hi Everyone! My name is Krista Crawford, and I teach Math at Van Wert Elementary. I grew up in Atlanta, Georgia and attended Berry College for my Early Childhood Education Degree. I have a Master's Degree in Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment, and a Specialist's Degree in Educational Technology. This is my 23rd year of teaching, and all but five of those years were in a 5th grade classroom.
I believe that all students can learn, but the manner in which they learn may be quite different. For me, it is imperative that students feel safe in order to explore their understandings and take risks within their learning environment. Students need to be challenged, and yet, nurtured through love and understanding of their needs for them to be successful.
In addition to teaching, I also coach the Rockmart High School Girls' Varsity Soccer Team, and I am an assistant Volleyball Coach. I am very excited about this upcoming year, and I look forward to working with all of my students and parents.
