My name is Jennifer Crowder. I am a 5th grade teacher at Shady Shores Elementary. I have been employed with the Lake Dallas school district since 1994. I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from the University of North Texas and currently have certifications for Elementary Early Childhood Education, Elementary Self-Contained and English as a Second Language.
During my career with Lake Dallas ISD, I have had the privilege of teaching students on all campuses and a variety of programs in our school district. I started my LD career at Lake Dallas Primary as a Kindergarten teacher in 1994. I then taught fifth grade for several years at Lake Dallas Elementary and Lake Dallas Intermediate Schools until my daughter, Katharine, was born. While out of the classroom, I spent four years working in specialized math and reading instruction programs on a variety of Lake Dallas ISD campuses. I then continued my career with Lake Dallas in the Math Curriculum Department and as an Instructional Coach. In 2014, I had the privilege of joining the Shady Shores family as I returned to the classroom. I am looking forward to a great school year with my students and all that they are going to learn. My goal is for all students to become lifelong independent learners.
