Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Jessica Crador
My name is Jessica Crador, and this is my 11th year teaching. I graduated McNeese in 2009 with a bachelor degree in Elementary Education. I taught 3rd grade at Fairview Elementary my first two years of teaching. From there, I transferred to Southwest Louisiana Charter Academy where I taught 5th grade Science for 3 years. I was content as a 5th grade Science teacher, but when an opening came up at Gillis Elementary in 2015, I jumped at the opportunity to teach in my hometown. That’s how my journey in Special Education began. My first 3 years at Gillis, I taught the early childhood autism class. During which time, I completed my certification in special education, mild-moderate 1-5. I am currently in my 3rd year of teaching the self-contained/resource combo class at Gillis Elementary.
