Miss Crystal is a graduate of Anderson Univeristy with a degree in Elementary Education. This is her 16th year teaching and fifth year with Miss Kelly. She has worked in lots of different types of classrooms, but this is my favorite. She also works at a local drug store in the pharmacy when she isn't at school. She is  an aunt to a sweet four year old little boy and a brand new baby girl. She loves to spoil them rotten.


Nurse Missy has been a nurse for over 25 years. She serves as our nurse as well as an assisstant in our classroom. She has been floating between several special education classrooms and we are thrilled to have her full time in our classroom. She is very involved in her church. She has been married to her husband Chuck for ten years. In her free time, she loves to work in her yard!
