Full Name: Karen Elizabeth Crawford (PLEASE call me Karen!! My mother-in-law is Mrs. Crawford)
Birthdate: April 28
Fun facts: I have lived in the same neighborhood my whole life, and attended Wilchester Elementary, Spring Forest Junior High (that’s what it was called back in the day), Westchester High School (where like Lynell, I was a Wranglerette).
I am married to Steve Crawford, but work for Steve Cragg, and now I always have to clarify which Steve I’m talking about when I quote/refer to them.
All 3 of my awesome children (Daniel, Drew and Rachel) have also worked for Steve Cragg as summer staffers for multiple years.
All 5 in my family are former or current students at Texas A&M (WHOOP!)
I taught math at Katy Taylor HS (and was the cheerleader sponsor, which was really fun!!) I currently tutor math (middle school through Geometry).
Favorites: my family; amazing friends (the sisters God didn’t give me); my dogs Amos and Sparky; good coffee with real cream; fried food (except calamari – the tentacles scare me); real Diet Coke (no knock-offs or Pepsi products please); tennis; all things Colorado – mountains, hiking, babbling brooks, cool air, etc; working and playing with my new youth staff family!
I avoid: mushy food (like guacamole and pudding); golf on TV; running (unless for a tennis ball); cleaning out my closets; the Kardashians; acting my age
I love the Fruit of the Spirit in Galations 6:22-23: Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
