Important information for Mrs. Crownhart’s class:




Welcome to the new school year!

I am very excited about teaching third grade again at Classical School, and am looking forward to meeting all of my new students and their parents. The students at Classical are fantastic, and it is great to have parents who are intrinsically involved with the school.

My favorite year in school was third grade. Maybe that’s why I like teaching at this grade level so well. I grew up in LaPorte, Indiana, a small midwestern town. A large part of my time was spent with my family and relatives. My parents made education a priority in our home and encouraged my sisters and me to seek college degrees. I greatly appreciated their support and help during my collegiate years at Purdue University, where I graduated with a B.A. in Elementary Education. Additionally, while there I met my husband, Mark.

We have been blessed with three lovely daughters, and participating in my daughters’ childhoods as a stay at home mom was very rewarding. However, as they grew older I reentered the educational field by substituting in the Appleton School System and teaching fourth grade for two years at the Fox Valley Christian Academy. I have been working at Classical School since the Fall of 2001. Our daughters are all out of the house now, each one pursuing their varied journeys. We have two active dogs though, Maggie and Millie, who add a lot of life to our home.
