Mrs. Christy Croom

Welcome to my website. I am Christy Croom, a Fifth Grade ELA teacher at SCES. I am also the Differentiation Model Teacher for Fifth Grade, the Advisor of the SCES Yearbook. I serve on the council for the NEHS (National Elementary Honor Society), as well as the School and System Leadership Teams. 
 
I was raised in Seminole County from the age of four. I am the middle of three, but the only girl in my family. I have an older brother, Robert, and a younger brother, Ashley. Both Robert and Ashley are football coaches. They were inspired by my dad, Coach Ingram, who was the head football coach for our Seminole County Indians. He retired last year after 43 years of teaching and coaching. My mom is a nurse and works for Visiting Nurses. With all these football players we sure needed her growing up. Robert coaches at a high school north of Atlanta (Acworth), while Ashley coaches for the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland (Go Navy, Beat Army).
 
I am married to Jeff Croom and we have two wonderful sons, Jeffery and Josh. Jeffery is twenty-four and enjoying college life. Josh is the youngest. He is twenty and graduated from Seminole County High School in 2015. He then went to welding school at Tulsa Welding School in Jacksonville, Florida. He graduated from there in January of 2016 and is now working for his dad on the farm, but will continue his welding as well.
 
I have been teaching for a long time! I taught Kindergarten for 3 years, third grade for 3 years, and after teaching second grade for 2 years, I moved up to Fifth…My FAVORITE! This will be my 21st  year teaching and I love fifth grade because I know you will be the best group I have ever had.  It’s going to be a fun year full of lots of learning and new adventures through literature and I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us. It is a pleasure to have your child in my classroom. I hope to have a very successful year.
