Welcome to 4th Grade! My name is Crystal Ranson and I'm originally from Mason, Ohio. I am very excited to continue my teaching career at KGA. I look forward to an amazing year of learning with your children.

My Education and Professional Background

I received my Bachelors in Elementary Education in 2001 from Miami University in Oxford, OH. In 2007, I earned my Masters in Elementary Education from MaryGrove College in Detroit, MI. In 2016, I received my Structured English Immersion endorsement. Then in 2018, I earned my K-12 Gifted Endorsement. I have taught for a total of 18 years. I taught 7th and 8th grade ELA for 7 years and Gifted 2nd grade for 8 years while living in Ohio for Goshen Local Schools. In 2016 after moving from Ohio to Arizona, I began teaching at KGA in 1st grade. In 2018, I joined the 4th grade team.

My Educational Philosophy

The best part of being an educator is fostering life-long learning in children. There is no better gift than seeing a child succeed as they explore their world and education. KGA allows for children to experience real-world learning through creativity and design and that is simply priceless! I am very fortunate to be apart of such an environment and will work hard to ensure that all of my students are given the opportunity to be the best learners. We will laugh, struggle, and learn so much from each other!
