Principal's Corner

A little about me...

I have four children, Caleb, Erika, Cameron and Leesha.  I have been a school principal since the Fall of 2005.  Before serving as a school administrator, I taught or tutored mathematics at every level from Kindergarten to College Freshman.  I enjoy the outdoors and spending time with my family. I welcome you to stop by the school and visit.  My door is always open. Thank you for giving us the privilege of traveling the educational highway with your children!

If you have questions or comments, I invite you to email me at chris.geary@cpsrams.org



It's a great day to be a RAM!  

We are implementing new strategies each year and in all of our classrooms which are designed to help all of our students reach their "Life's greatest potential!"
What's important in school?

I believe in a student-centric model of learning. Inside each learner is an innate desire to know. Curiosity is a powerful force which, when properly harnessed, will promote investigation and strengthen learning.  A teacher's responsibility is to ensure students have access to quality curriculum and are actively engaged in deepening their understanding.  There are a number of factors which contribute to the success of our students.  At the top of that list, in my mind, is what educational researcher Robert Marzano terms a "safe-orderly environment."  Our goal at Crawford High School is to provide our students with a warm environment rich with learning experiences that promote each learner's natural curiosity.
