My name is Barbara Crowe. I am the reading coach at Madison Cross Roads Elementary. I have been teaching for 25 years - all at MXR. I received my BSEd from Athens State University, my MSEd from Alabama A&M, and recently completed the requirements for National Board Certification in Literacy: Reading-Language Arts/Early and Middle Childhood. I am married to my husband Jeff and have a daughter, a son, a step-daughter, and 4 grandchildren - which take up most of my time outside of school. I love to travel and have visited many countries around the world. I am also a big Alabama fan and love to go see the Tide play. Madison Cross Roads is part of who I am and I consider myself lucky to be a member of such a special family.
