HI!  I'M MRS. Crane

Teaching is an absolute passion of mine.  I am so excited to work with you and your child. It’s going to be a year full of fun, learning, and lots of adventures and I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us.  I thought you might like to know a little bit about me.

I am married to my wonderful husband Steven.  We got married July 9th so we are still getting use to this married life.  In my free time I like to read, cook, and rest outside. I also have 2 amazing nephews that I love to spend time with whenever I get a chance.

I have lived in the Birmingham area most of my life. I went to Clay-Chalkville High School and then moved on to the University of North Alabama and graduated in 2012.  Since then I have completed my master’s degree online through UNA.  I am the youngest of two.  My sister is also a teacher in a different school district. 

This will be my fourth year teaching but, my first year at Leeds.  Before coming to Leeds I taught second grade for 3 years at Grantswood Community School.  I absolutely love teaching this age group.  It is my mission to instill a love for learning in my students.  I attempt to teach with a passion for my subject so that my students develop a desire to become life- long learners. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.  It is important to keep communication open between us and I would love to talk to you whenever you feel the need.  I look forward to a great year together!  

This year I am team teaching with Mrs. Gillieylen.  I will be teaching English Language Arts and social studies.  She will be teaching math and science.
