Welcome to Mrs. Crouch's Webpage!
I am very honored to be working with Kountze ISD as Director of Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment. I have proudly served the District in many capacities during my career. I have served as a Middle School math teacher, Middle School Assistant Principal, Middle School Principal, Community Education Director, and High School Principal. I also served three years overseas working with Abu Dhabi Education Council as a Cluster Manager/Superintendent. Prior to my education career, I spent over 15 years in the business world in Advertising and Public Relations. I attended Lamar University where I received my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with a specialization in math, my Master’s degree in School Administration, and my Superintendent certification in School Leadership.
Kountze ISD has a vision to be a leading district in the state of Texas through high educational standards. Through it's value statement, KISD will prepare and challenge students, equip them with positive beliefs and values, and respect individual initiative and personal growth. Kountze ISD's mission is to be committed to enabling students to be productive and responsible citizens while expediting hopes and dreams through education. Students are given the opportunity to acquire academic skills, physical skills, technology skills, and a knowledge base for life-long learning.
Partnerships with community members, parents, teachers, staff and students will ensure positive relationships that build trust and commitment in the school district. As Albert Einstein once said...
"Bear in mind that the wonderful things you learn in your schools are the work of many generations. All this is put in your hands as your inheritance in order that you may receive it, honor it, add to it, and one day faithfully hand it on to your children."
