A native of Baltimore, Crystal received her education in Baltimore County Public School. Upon graduating from high school, she attended Coppin State University where she earned her bachelor's degree in psychology, minoring in early childhood education. Crystal’s experience ranges from working with infants to pre-kindergarteners within private childcare programs, Baltimore City Public Schools and Head Start/Early Head Start. Crystal worked in the education field not only educating and teaching children, but also mentoring and training volunteers. She joined Reading Partners 2-years ago as an Americorps Regional Site Coordinator. Last year she became a member of the Reading Partners staff as a Program Associate; this year she enters into her new role as Program Manager. Through her professional experience, she has realized that literacy is the foundation for success in learning and for success in life. She believes that in order to help someone succeed in learning, you must provide each child (and adult learner) with the right attention and care they need to reach their developmental goals. In addition to working with children, Crystal also enjoy working with administrators, educators, specialist, parents, and the greater community; she believes that educating children is a collaborated effort of many.
