5th Grade is an adventure. Welcome to the home of the Cougar's where we Prey on Pride.

     It is an honor and a privilege that I have the opportunity to work with you and your 5th grade student. As a parent myself, I truly believe that it's an enormous responsibility to prepare our children for their future. What better way to prepare  them for their future than to teach them to be responsible, respectful, honorable, and dedicated people. Our children are our future and the leaders of tomorrow.

    When my students' enter into our classroom, I want them to feel excited about what they will be learning each and everyday. I believe all children can learn, learning can be fun, and all children should feel safe and comfortable enough to come to me for any reasons. My door is an open door policy, and you are always welcome. 

    I always had this crazy philosophy that there would always be time for a career, but there would not always be time for my children, Amanda and Chris Crawford. Therefore, I did not go back to school until late in life. I am so glad I did because I am doing something I dreamed of doing for many years. I teach!

    As we move forward this year, I plan on using this website to keep you informed with some of the important and fun activities we will be participating in, what changes will be taking place as we move forward with Common Core, and the use of technology and how we can use it to stay informed.

    You can contact me in the mornings between 7:20 and 7:45 or afternoons between 2:40 and 3:00 at the school: 836-6689 or you can email me at dcrawfor@pbvusd.net
