Mrs. Crystal Whitman
I am Crystal Whitman, a native of Transylvania County. I attended Rosman Elementary (first graduating class), Rosman Middle, and Rosman High School. After college, I taught in West Asheville for five years and then headed back to Transylvania County to be closer to my family and the community I so dearly love. After a year at Brevard Elementary, I was able to return to Rosman Elementary. It was so exciting to be teaching with teachers that had taught me years before!
This is currently my twenty-fifth year teaching and my nineteenth year at Rosman Elementary. I can not think of a better place to be! I love each day with our sweet, smart, silly children and a staff that is so dedicated to serving the needs of our children academically, socially, and emotionally. I currently serve as the lead teacher/instructional coach of our school and work with kids and teachers each day to make our school an even better place. I dearly loved my eighteen years as a fourth grade teacher, but my current position has allowed me to learn so much from so many experts.
I am married to Larry Whitman who is also a Rosman Elementary alumni. We actually sat together in third grade (of course I thought he was super icky back then). We have a seventeen year old son who is heavily involved in sports, academics, and Christian organizations at Rosman High. I enjoy spending time with my family, reading children's books, and scrapbooking. I never get tired of reading educational books to gather new ideas for myself and others!
Please feel free contact me if you have questions about our school. It truly is a wonderful place to be and one of my favorite topics to talk about!!!
