My name is Crystal Watson.  I am a fourth grade teacher here at Cooper Academy.  I have been in education since 2005 in the Johnston County Public School system.  My education is from Essex County College where I received an Associate Degree in Early Childhood Education.  Also, I attended University of Mount Olive and earned a Bachelor Degree in Education. 

I am from Smithfield, N.C. but I live in Clayton and have been here for seven years.  I am the third oldest of eight children.  I am a youth leader at church.  Decorating my house is one of my favorite hobbies.  Spending times with family is very important to me.  My favorite hobby is teachig the children that I come in contact with.   I believe that we all can learn and we all learn diferently.  

I looking forward to building relationships with you all this year.
