Mrs. Crabtree

I am so happy to introduce myself to our French Valley Family.  I am entering my 29th year of teaching and I couldn't be more excited than year one.  I have worked in school districts from Garden Grove, Newport-Mesa, Corona-Norco, as well as Round Rock, Texas.  Thoughout my years in education and I have taught 3rd grade through 6th grade.  For the past many years, I have settled in at 3rd grade and love it. As a teacher, I feel it is my duty to instill the love of learining in my students.  I do so by forming meaningful relationships with my kids, engaging them in activities that encourage participation, and by making learning fun.  I'm known for being a bit silly in the classroom and competitive on the playground. I am very outgoing and have an open-door policy.  As you know, it takes a village to raise kids, and I want to be an important member of the village. Each year I emphazoze kindness, empathy, and a family atmosphere in my classroom.  I have a Hollywood themed classroom and believe we are all stars! We celebrate differences, uniqueness, success.  Personal Best is my motto and that is different for each of us. Let's celebrate a new year of learning and growth. Lights, Camera, Action!
