Welcome To My Page

Hi! My name is Mary Crum. Welcome to my web-page. I graduated from the University of South Florida in 1984. I taught Kindergarten for three years in Tampa, Florida. I moved to Spain after marrying my husband John who was in the Air Force in 1987. I taught First and Third Grades for the Department of Defense Dependent Schools (DODDS) and left Spain late in 1990. We moved to Valdosta at that time and I substituted until I began teaching at Parker Mathis in the beginning of the 1992-1993 school year. I have taught Title 1, Third Grade, Fourth Grade, and EIP since joining the Parker Mathis family which is now the Westside family.
