• Hello everyone! My name is April Craig. I am honored to be teaching 2nd Grade at J. Larry Newton this year. I was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee and earned my Bachelors in Elementary Education from The University of Memphis (Go Tigers Go!!). I later went on to earn a Masters in both Teaching ELLs and Early Childhood Education. I have a wonderful husband named Jeff who works in Mobile as an aircraft mechanic, which is what brought us to Alabama. I have two daughters, Hannah and Haley who will be attending J. Larry Newton this year and a grown stepson, Jordan, who still lives in Memphis. Last but not least, we have a spoiled rotten, but oh so cute poodle named Charlie. We recently bought a house in Spanish Fort and even though we just moved here in May, we already feel like Alabama is home.
