Teacher Tuesday: Darla Craig
This week we are featuring our fabulous Darla Craig! Here is more about Darla!
Tell us a bit about your family. Do you have kids? If so, what ages are they? Do you have pets?
Kyra is a freshman at Western Washington University. Kian is a seventh grader at Meeker. Currently I have one Golden Retriever, Miles, who loves to run the field. Dori and Ella are my two very cuddly cats. In the past I have had a prairie dog and Newfoundlands.
What are your hobbies? What do you love to do outside of work?
I enjoy crocheting, knitting, gardening, and baking/cooking. This only happens when I am not a soccer match or a Boy Scout event.
How long have you been teaching, and how many years at Crescent Heights?
I have taught over three decades. Yikes!!! I started here the first year. It was very exciting!
What is the funniest thing a student has ever done in your class?
Too many to name. My kids are always funny. I have a great class! I did ask the class this year to define special. One student blurted out, “Me!”
If you weren’t a teacher, what else would you love to do as your career?
I came very close to going to the Culinary Institute in Portland. Thought I could do that and teach. Silly. I’d probably work with animals or at a garden shop.
Tell us one thing you’d love for the families of Crescent Heights to know about you.
I appreciate your support! You are so important to the success of this school!
