With over 10 years of teaching experience, she recently taught ballet, jazz and cheer at New Hope Christian Preschool and Elementary School in Jackson, MS. As the current director of the Prancing J-Settes, she and current J-Settes were recently featured in an HBCU commercial campaign in conjunction with AT&T featuring recording artist, dancer and singer Ciara. 
As a dance educator, Mrs. Crowley feels that her greatest strength is the ability to build positive working relationships with her students. She acknowledges that dance is evolutionary and believes in the continuing development of the dance world and the impact that it plays in society. While teaching, she has epitomized that rare mix of compassion and approach-ability with the potential to set high expectations for her students as dancers and choreographers. Her main goal as an educator is to grow intellectually and professionally with her students. Mrs. Crowley also expects that her strong passion, enthusiasm and respect for the dance profession will positively influence and greatly affect future generation of students.
