Meet Mill’s New Assistant Principal

School Information Portrait of Vanessa Crawley with a paw print clipart background

My name is Vanessa Crawley. You may recognize me as a previous Mill Park 5th grade teacher. I had the privilege of teaching at Mill Park for 7 years before spending this last school year working at our District Office.

I am so excited to be returning to Mill Park for the upcoming 2022-23 school year as the Assistant Principal. I look forward to being a part of the Mill Park Community again, working with your students, and reestablishing relationships with all of our wonderful families!

In addition to supporting Principal Craig in running the school, my role will be heavily focused on Restorative Practices, which is:

Restorative Practices is a framework for building and sustaining relationships between individuals and within a community. Through the use of authentic dialogue and differentiated relational strategies, we can respond to student behavior while coming to a common understanding of attitudes and actions that can repair issues and make things right with others.

I’m grateful to be back and can’t wait to see you all in the Fall!
