I currently am teaching 8th grade Science and Vocal music which includes High School Choir, Junior High Choir and 7th and 8th grade music wheel classes.
I have enjoyed a long and productive teaching career. My career includes teaching band and music in Mississippi, Louisiana and Arkansas. I taught Special education in Louisiana, Georgia and Arkansas, 6th grade math in Georgia and 7th and 8th grade science in Arkansas. I also taught preschool in Louisiana.
I have served in youth & children’s ministry for churches in Mississippi, Louisiana, Georgia, Alabama and Arkansas as both volunteer staff and paid staff.
I am married to Chris Crouch since 1984. We do not have any children of our own, but we are not childless. We have enjoyed children and youth in five southern states.
We enjoy our dog and our log house on Wye Mountain.
I am a New Orleans SAINTS fan, which puts me in the minority up here in Dallas Cowboy Country, but I proudly wear my black and gold when they play and it does not matter to me whether they win or lose! WHO DAT!!!!
I also enjoy crocheting blankets, scarves and hats. I enjoy reading and watching mystery stories and stories of triumph. My favorite past-time is enjoying our swing and the lovely weather we have in Arkansas. We enjoy traveling in our 1999 Wrangler Jeep to the various State Parks and museums in the Natural State and have learned a lot about its history and natural beauty.
