B.S. Elementary Education from LSU Louisiana Teaching Certificate
Welcome to 5th grade! If you are visiting this page, it means your child has been placed in Mrs. Croll's Class. Mrs. Croll was born and raised in Saint Bernard Parish and graduated from Chalmette High. Mrs. Croll's nurturing personality and patience with children led her to choose a career as a teacher and earn a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education from Louisiana State University. While attending LSU, Mrs. Croll participated in the Walt DisneyWorld College Program. The internship, along with many childhood vacations, sparked a love for Disney and prompted her to move to Florida after graduation to work in Disney's Entertainment Department. She received her Florida Teaching Certificate and was hired as a teacher for Osceola County. After six years in Florida and after Hurricane Katrina, Mrs. Croll decided it was time to move back home to Louisiana to be closer to her family.
Mrs. Croll has many years experience working with lower elementary and early childhood. She taught Pre-School for seven years and Kindergarten for five years. She is excited to move up to a higher grade level and take on the challenge of teaching 5th grade at Joseph Davies Elementary. Today she combines both her passion for Disney and her passion for teaching in the classroom. Mrs. Croll's classroom can be described as colorful and animated. Like her hero Walt Disney, she teaches her students to use their imagination and take risks. She also believes in incorporating the creative arts as much as possible when teaching the core subjects. Mrs. Croll looks forward to meeting all of her new students in August as we embark on a new magical journey!
