Ceil Crowley

I knew at a young age that I wanted to work with children, I taught primary grades for 14 years. I enjoyed the leadership roles I had while teaching and those experiences led me to the path of administration. My entire career has been focused on working with and teaching children and adults. I have an Elementary Education degree from St. Catherine University, Master of Arts degree in Leadership and Administration, and an Educational Specialist degree in Administration and Leadership from the University of St. Thomas. I am fortunate to have experienced many different settings, with populations of 175-700 students, working with students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade.

As I retired from administration, I found after forty some years, I couldn’t stay away from education. I was fortunate to be hired as Test Coordinator at North Metro Flex Academy. I work with the MCA (Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments) and NWEA (Northwest Evaluation Association) testing. Both of these programs measure academic progress and growth with the students. The results allow our teachers to know where a student’s strengths are, or if help might be needed in any specific areas. Teachers use this information to help guide instruction and curriculum development. I love the challenge of working with all of the grades.
