Hello! My name is Miss Crosson and this is my sixth year at Bellefonte Area High School. I teach academic and accelerated English for the ninth grade, and AP Language for juniors and seniors; I also serve as co-adviser to the Class of 2020.
Outside of school, I love to travel. I am currently serving as a Fulbright Teachers for Global Classrooms fellow through the U.S. Department of State. As part of my fellowship, I travelled to Morocco last spring to observe and coteach in their schools. I've been to about a dozen different countries, and I studied abroad in London while I was in college. My profile picture on this page is me soaking up the scenery in one of my favorite places- the Isle of Skye in Scotland <3
As an English teacher, of course I have lots of favorite books and authors! This summer, I completed a dream vacation to the United Kingdom to visit all things Harry Potter! I rode on the Hogwarts Express, went to the Warner Bros Studios, visited the real-life inspirations for Diagon Alley, Tom Riddle, and Hogwarts, and saw the live production of The Cursed Child. If you still doubt, my devotion, pop into my classroom and check out the decor. The only book that *might* rival my obsession for Harry Potter is To Kill A Mockingbird. I love teaching 9th grade, in part, because I get to share this amazing, moving, and important novel with students. I love it so much, we even revisit in AP Langauge.
Prior to coming to Bellefonte, I taught for a year in southern Delaware. Over the years, my teaching schedule has included 10th grade English, Foundational Writing, Public Speaking, and Science and Literature. If you're a student at Bellefonte, you're nearly bound to cross my path at some point! Before starting my teaching career, I attended Susquehanna University for my undergraduate degree in English. I also completed my masters in Educational Leadership at Penn State during my second year at BAHS.
