    About Me:

    Hello and thank you for visiting my page.  My name is Emily Crissman and this is my fourth year teaching here in Medina.  I am a 4th Grade teacher at Clifford Wise and I love it here.  

    I was born in Rome, New York, but have lived in Lockport for the majority of my life. I attended Lockport High School, where athletics played an integral part in shaping who I am today.  From there, I attended Buffalo State College where I received my BA in Elementary Education and Exceptional Education.  I received my MS from Niagara University in the area of Literacy Education.  

    My husband Adam, son Brady (9), twin daughters Grace and Nora (8), and our 165lb fur baby Kai the Newfie are the greatest joys in my life.   We are Buffalo Bills fans, which can be frustrating, but we always have hope!  We have recently taken on a love of hockey, so now we are true Buffalo Sabres fans, which I have found can be equally as frustrating.  Overall, we love a good competition in our household and can often be found having a family football game, hockey game, or soccer game in the backyard.

    I am sure throughout the year you will learn more about me through the stories I tell in the classroom.  I think of my students as a family, so I think it is valuable that I share with them snippets from my life outside of school.  In my classroom, we love to learn, but we also love to laugh!
