Welcome to 4th grade! My name is Mrs. Crothers (rhymes with Brothers). I will be teaching AGP ELA and Social Studies this year. My partner teacher, Mrs. Jones, will be teaching AGP Math and Science.
This will be my 16th year in education. I was born in South Carolina and graduated from the University of South Carolina, where I majored in Broadcast Journalism with a minor in Elementary Education. After realizing teaching was my true passion, I went on to earn my Master's Degree in Elementary Education. During college, I completed my teaching internship in District 5 and haven't left since.
My husband, Ryan, also happens to serve in education. We have two children, Orly (10) and Hayes (5). In our free time, we love watching movies, spending time near the water or mountains, and cheering on the Gamecocks.
During this year, I hope to help my students grow as passionate and independent thinkers. My goal is to foster a love of reading, writing, and history. I believe in a strong sense of community where children feel comfortable taking risks and are able to have respectful conversations. I look forward to a year of growth in 4th grade!
