Crystal Padilla


I knew I wanted to be a teacher when I was eight years old. I had a teacher who I knew cared whole-heartedly about my personal success. She made our lessons so much fun that I would go home and teach my pretend class the same lessons. Today I have the opportunity of being that special teacher for my students. I get to show children that learning is an adventure and have the privilege of leading the expeditions and joining in the fun! My passion for learning and love for life is contagious to my students and the smiling faces of happy students are my daily reward. I believe learning should be fun and invoke lasting memories that help lead to a life long love of learning.

Other loves: my husband and daughter, my family, photography, snowboarding, wake-boarding, fishing, the ocean, camping, traveling, being outdoors and experiencing the world!
