speakerWhat People Are Saying

I set my expectation for all students at a high level. I understand that everyone learns differently and how important it is to use different styles and accommodations when needed. Using varied techniques enables a teacher to use her incredible gifts so that every child can gain new knowledge, grow and become successful. -- Crystal Westbrook

Crystal has organized the classroom as a true professional educator and upon entering her classroom and observing, one would think she had been teaching for numerous years. Crystal brings music, technology, individual, small group and whole group lessons into her classroom each and every day, while successfully meeting the requirements of the curriculum and the district. -- University Faculty

Crystal is very organized and skilled in her lesson planning. When given the scope and sequence for the subject at hand, she could prepare lessons that would lay a foundation and then build upon the content learned. Her lessons always had the student’s total engagement. She is sensitive to each student and their needs, whether it is emotional, academic, or physical. -- Cooperating Teacher
