Welcome Tiger Families, Leaders, and Scholars!
What a blessing it is to be joining the Crabbe Family. I am thrilled to be the new Principal of Crabbe Elementary School. I am here to serve my staff, scholars, and tiger families. I am happy to be returning back "home" after 14 years living in Richmond, KY with 8 years experience of teaching and leadership roles in Fayette County Public Schools.
I began my career in 2010 at Yates Elementary School in Lexington, KY as the Music Specialist/Interventionist. There I taught K-5 for 5 years with reading and math RtI (Response to Intervention) in both primary and intermediate grades. My focus while in this position was also the implementation of reading and math while having fun through playful activities during my music instruction.
In 2015 I transferred to Mary Todd Elementary to help aid in their behavior management and implementation of Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports by becoming the Professional Growth and Effectiveness Systems Coach for Behavior & Discipline (PGES Coach for short). This gave me the oppurtunity to showcase my leadership qualities and abilities to move scholars forward in the behavior MTSS process.
I currently have a 13 year old son enrolled at Ashland Middle School going in the 8th grade. He and I both are excited to be apart of a new chapter in our lives.
I am looking forward in taking Crabbe Elementary to the next level and hope you are excited and ready to shine together! Please feel free to contact me as needed... And remember, it's a great day to be a tiger!
Stay tuned for more information!
