Hello! My name is Crystal McNicol, and I am a fourth grade teacher at LaSalle Elementary School. When I was in high school, I participated in the Teacher Cadet program where I went to a grade school in the afternoons to help. That experience made me realize that teaching was for me. I received my Bachelor’s degree for Elementary Education with endorsements in Language Arts and Social Science from Eureka College in 1998. In 2004, I went to St. Xavier University and received my Master’s degree in Teaching and Leadership.
