“I love how she wants us to be happy. She wants me to learn and love learning. I can tell she cares about each of us and will do all she can to help us succeed.”
“Ms. Crossley always relates the principles of AP English and writing to life in general. She always brings engaging topics to class that allow me to improve both my academics and my overall character.”
“She has us do a lot of group things which are always fun; also she does a great job of relating things to the gospel and in showing us why the class is meaningful which gives it purpose and makes it very engaging.”
“Without a single exception, we have felt her personal interest in and love for our son every single time that we have spoken with her. She is very positive and encouraging! She brings an inspiring spirit into her classroom that is wonderful and tangible.”
“She allows us to express our opinions freely and debate with our classmates about different subjects. She really cares about every student and wants the best for them. She is super nice and explains things very clearly.”
Why do you love teaching at AHS? — I am grateful to be in a place where students are mature and sensitive to the needs of not only their peers but their teachers. Furthermore, I love working with faculty and leadership who see things as they really are and lead their lives with moral authority.
Family — I am an identical twin and the youngest of 8 children. (Ty Crossley, a 7th-grade core teacher, is my older brother.)
Hobbies — I love singing with my twin sister! Feel free to look us up on YouTube “Heather and Heidi Crossley.”
What do you love about teaching language? — I love teaching AP Language & Composition because we work with material and content that enables us to build a foundation and then practice deciphering between right from wrong and truth from error.
Education — Bachelor of Arts, English/Education, Brigham Young University Idaho
“I hope to empower students with tools to have “eyes to see” the workings of God around them, “ears to hear” His truth, and with “hearts that know” and clearly discern right from wrong and truth from error.”
– Miss Crossley
Why did you choose the teaching profession?
I never saw myself being a teacher. It wasn’t until my senior year of high school when I was reminded by the spirit of several instances in my life where the Lord had empowered me to teach. After much research and prayer, I realized my deepest passion in life is derived from attaining truth and helping others obtain it in their own unique way. Teaching and learning are eternal principles, and I love being a part of this eternal work.
