Great News for Crane Elementary Families! We are thankful for the support provided to our families! Thank you, First Baptist Church of Crane! Click on the photo to read full image!
Please join us in welcoming back, Ms. Linda Jensen! She will be teaching 3rd grade this upcoming school year! I’ve been with Crane Schools for a long time. I started in 6th grade. I became the elementary counselor where I stayed until I retired 2 years ago. I substitute taught and drove a bus through COVID. I am still coaching Track and Field and Cross Country. In my spare time I love spending time with family. I have 1 daughter still at home and 2 dogs. Coco adjusted to retired life better than I did and hangs with Sadie all day. Grandkids are the best! I love all sports and watch as much as I can. Crane school is home and I am excited to be back in the classroom. We are excited to have you back, Ms. Jensen!
Please join us in welcoming Mrs. Breanna Scott. She will be teaching 4th grade! Hello! My name is Breanna Scott. I'm so excited to start my new journey as a Crane Pirate! This will be my 7th year teaching, but I have been at home the last two years running an in-home daycare. I have been married for 5 years. We have two beautiful children. Kendrick, 4, will be in preschool this year and Hensley is 2. We are also excited to announce that baby #3 is on the way! I spend most of my free time chasing those 2 crazy kids around. I can't wait to get back into the classroom and start doing what I do best again! I'm ready to get the school year started! Welcome to the Pirate Family and congratulations on your wonderful news!
Please join us in welcoming one of our "new-to-Crane" teachers, Mrs. Pam Rowe, who will be one of our Special Education teachers. I am honored to be chosen for the Special Ed. teaching position at Crane R-3. I am looking forward to learning as much from the students and staff as I hope they will learn from me. For the past 3 years, I have subbed for Crane in multiple classrooms. I am also one of the several bus drivers this past year. I graduated from SMSU (now MSU) with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Ed., and a minor in Special Ed. Afterwhich, I earned a Master's Degree in Reading. I then went on to complete a Specialist in Education Administration, with a Superintendent Certificate. I have had the privilege to teach in elementary and middle school. I have also served as a principal in elementary and middle school for the last 17 years while in education. I retired in 2019. I am the Missouri State Coordinator for Student Air Rifle and I help coach archery for Crane. In my spare time, I work at Silver Dollar City as the Safety Trainer on the ride Mystic River Falls. Between my husband and I, we have 5 children, now all adults. We have 20 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren. Seems impossible! I enjoy being with my family, camping, mowing, reading and making tumblers when I can. Welcome to the Pirate Family, Mrs. Rowe!
Update on our track - Even though you can't see any work being done, there is work being done in the background. Bids will be accepted starting next week. If anyone local would like a chance to bid on work being done, let me know and I will pass your information on to the contractor. By the time bids are taken and accepted, we look for actual dirt work to begin in September. It's hard to be patient as we are so excited to get a track! Thank you again for your support!
Please join us in welcoming one of our new teachers, Mrs. Emilea Buckhannan, who will be teaching kindergarten. My name is Emilea Buckhannan and I am going into my 3rd year of teaching!

I am married to my husband, Levi, and we have 4 daughters. Their ages are: 14, 7, 6, and 5. My hobbies and interests include spending time with my family, going to church, being outdoors, owning an online boutique, watching and playing sports - especially basketball, and traveling.
