Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Crystal Karnow
I'm Crystal Karnow and I love 5th grade!! This will be my 27th year teaching and my 5th year at Paramount Elementary. I have taught 1st grade (3 years), 3rd grade (1 year), 4th grade (13 years), a 4/5 combo (1 year), and 5th grade (you do the math!). Fifth grade is by far my favorite! I am excited for a new year with new goals and challenges. I believe every child is a star and shines in their own certain way. I love when children discover things they didn't know and make connections. It's so great to see them grow throughout the school year.
I grew up in Montana and moved to Twin Falls, Idaho when I was sixteen. I attended CSI and Boise State university and graduated with a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education. I have two children and three step-children. All are grown and on their own making their dreams come true! Our dog, Stella, is a yorkshire terrier and keeps us busy when the kids aren't around. I am looking forward to an awesome year!
