Hi, my name is Lindsey Branham and I am excited to be your child’s teacher. I graduated from Arkansas Tech University with a bachelors in early childhood education, and I earned my ESL endorsement. I am currently working on my masters in reading instruction. Before teaching elementary school, I taught gymnastics and cheerleading for seven years. I enjoy watching sports and cheering on the Arkansas Razorbacks.
2nd Grade Teachers
Hello parents! My name is Georgette Sandoval and I am part of the second grade team here at Crawford. I am originally from California, but have lived in Russellville for 12+ years, so this is home to me!
I graduated from Russellville High School in 2012, from Arkansas Tech University in 2016, and earned my ESL endorsement in 2018. Before that, I was an aftercare teacher for two years at Noah’s Ark Learning Center. I am bilingual as well, so ¡yo hablo español!
I am very passionate about every single student in my classroom, and have an absolute blast teaching second grade! I love elephants, outer space, reading books, watching John Hughes movies, and teaching young minds. Thank you for the privilege of getting to teach your children!
Hi, my name is Morgan Stockton and I am thrilled to be your child's teacher this school year. I graduated from the University of Central Arkansas in 2017 and this is my second year teaching. I am looking forward to learning and growing with your child this school year. Aside from teaching, working out and spending time with my family, friends and puppy are my favorite things to do!
Hello, my name is Mary Ridgeway. I am excited to teach your children this year! I graduated from Arkansas Tech University in the spring of 2016. I started teaching at Crawford Elementary in January of 2017. I love being part of the Crawford teaching team. One of my favorite quotes as a teacher is, “Teachers who love teaching, teach children to love learning.” Some of my favorite things to do when I’m not teaching is being outdoors, painting, and reading wonderful books.
