Van Wert Elementary (770) 684-6924

Planning time: 9:45-10:30

 

 

          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 24th year of teaching, and all but five have been in a 5th grade classroom.  Since coming to Van Wert Elementary, I have had the privilage of teaching just math to 3rd-5th grade students.

          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 at Rockmart High School.  Previously, I coached the Girls' Varsity Soccer Team, but now I am Junior Varsity Volleyball Coach.  I am very excited about this upcoming year, and I look forward to working with all of my students and parents.
