Crystal Rhoades

SpED Para Educator

Hi my name is Crystal and I am excited to start this new journey with the Bridge family! I have had my Child Development Associates Certificate for many years and I graduated from OWATC in 2017 with my Medical Office Certificate. Continuing my education is a very important personal goal of mine. I am a mother of two amazing children and engaged to a wonderful man! I love to spend time with my family and go hiking, camping, fishing and on mini vacations whenever possible. I am from Ogden but have lived in Clearfield for the past 2 years. I started teaching preschool my senior year in high school and continued to work in the preschool setting after graduation. I started my career with the Head Start Program shortly after. This program helped to shape me into the teacher I am today. I spent 13 years with Head Start and held the positions of Substitute Teacher/Teacher Assistant, Behavior/Disability Assistant and many years as a full time Teacher Assistant. 

The love of teaching is my passion! Which has led me to obtain my degree as an educator. I am now currently a full time student at Weber State University and working towards my Associates of Early Childhood. Let's start this year off strong and have fun! I will be the one that always has a smile to welcome you and your child everyday.
