My name is Mike McCrady and I am excited to welcome you to my website. You will find that it is a simple and as easy to use as I could possibly make it in order to allow you and your student to find all of the things you need to succeed in my class.
I have been teaching History in the West Ada School District for the last 21 years and I really love what I do. When asked how I am doing, my typical answer is always, "I'm livin the dream." This is the best job in the world and I look forward to trying to help you experience the best learning environment possible.
I am a blessed man and have been married to my beautiful wife for 22 years. We have two daughters Raegan(18) and Kyra(16) along with two fur babies Dottie and Lilo. One of the greatset joys I've had as an educator was coaching, for which I am finally able to say I am now retired from after being in some sort of season since the fall of 1996 in football to my last season of coaching golf here at Rocky Mountain. (2019...Scratch that, now I am the new Head Girl's Lacrosse Coach here at Rocky. Go GRIZZ!)
I am looking forward to the new chapter in my life where I can get the chance to coach both of my daughters instead of just being a fan in the bleachers, so my specator days with have to be put on hold for the next few years.
The purpose that I have in life comes from wanting to be the best teacher that I can be, but even more so, to be a great husband, father to Raegan and Kyra, and a son to Frank and Cheryl... for without family and faith, then I would find myself lost and without purpose. I'm beyond blessed to have all of that.
This is going to be a great year and I'm beyond excited to be your student's teacher.
