Mrs. Annie Croon
Hello! My name is Annie Croon.
This is my eleventh year with Caldwell county schools and my fifth year working as an Instructional Facilitator. I am a life-long learner and an avid reader. I have a BA in Child Study, am Special Education certified, and earned my MA in Reading Education from Appalachian State.
I come originally from Eastern Long Island, where the beaches are beautiful, but the winters are cold. My family and I moved to scenic North Carolina in 2006. We enjoy time in the foothills and visiting the coast. We have two grown children and one grandson.
My passion is helping readers of all ages learn new strategies to become the best readers they can be. I care so much about this because reading takes us to new places, teaches us new things, and because reading can help us discover more about ourselves - our likes and dislikes, our special talents, and hidden things we never dreamed we’d find within.
I look forward to our learning journey this year. My goal is to help both teachers and students be the best they can be through efficient teaching and learning strategies. Let's learn from each other!
