WELCOME to Third Grade! I'm Robin Crutchfield. I am beginning my 12th year of teaching. I've taught kindergarten, first and third grades at three different Guilford County schools. I have been here on the SWE ranch for the last seven years. I am the mother of two grown daughters, living in Greensboro and Charlotte. I have one granddaughter, who is starting kindergarten herself this year. I am a native to the triad, graduating from Ben L. Smith High School and High Point University. I am also known around the ranch as the biggest Pittsburgh Steelers fan!
Third grade is my passion. It is a scary transitional year for students and parents. It demands a lot of independence on both sides. Students taking more responsibility and parents letting them. But with the right information and guidance it can be the best year ever. I am excited to help you and your child navigate this first year of state testing. My fundamental belief? "It's one test, one day." There will be a great deal of learning going on the other 175 days.
As we begin this new school year, I look forward to meeting and working with each new student and family. It does indeed take a village, all of us working together to ensure your child's greatest success.
