My name is Tracy Crawford and I will be your child's lead classroom teacher. I have been married to Rick Crawford for 17 years. We have three children--Anna Catherine (10th grade--MCHS), Jackson (8th grade--MMS), and Chloe (6th grade--MMS). They attended Madison Avenue Elementary and had the BEST teachers in the world!!! As a family, we enjoy playing board games and card games, watching sports, traveling, and competing in Tae Kwon Do (well...I am a spectator but they are awesome competitors). We are also huge Ole Miss fans---Hotty Toddy!! Fins Up!!
I received a Bachelor of Education degree from Ole Miss. I am certified to teach any subjects grades K-6 and math grades 7-12. I taught for five years in DeSoto County. I was then blessed to become a stay-at-home mom to my children for six years. My next teaching adventure came with three years of teaching three year old preschool. I am now beginning my fifth year teaching at MAE. I love teaching and am truly blessed to be able to lead and encourage your children in their academic career. You can't imagine how much their smiles and sweet faces brighten my day!
Your assistant teacher is Ms. Montgomery. She is in her 10th year as an assistant at MAE. She has two sons and six grandchildren. She will be in an out of my classroom assisting students through oral, hands-on, and written work. She loves this school and these children and believes learning should be fun and active. You can find her in the front car rider line during morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up. Wave big!
