Mrs. Crean's Pre-K Class

Mrs. Crean


My name is Denise Crean and I am so excited to be teaching at St. Edward the Confessor School. I am a NYS certified teacher for Elementary Education (nursery – grade 6
) and have a Master’s Degree in education. In addition, I am a NYS certified teacher for Special Education (nursery –grade 12) and am Applied Behavioral Analysis, Module 1 Certified. I have over 11 years combined early childhood teaching experience. I am passionate about early childhood education and believe each child is a precious individual with their own unique learning style. One of my greatest joys is helping children gain self-confidence and grow to love learning! As a devout Catholic I am particularly excited to be teaching in a setting that permits me to share the love of God with the children in a supportive and nurturing manner.

I live in Farmingville with my husband and three boys. We are strong believers in the value of Catholic Education. All of our children have had the privilege of receiving a Catholic education, including my youngest son who has Down syndrome. I love spending time with my family, reading, and listening to music.

My teaching style is to create a positive, secure learning environment for the children and to involve the parents and the entire educational team. I am looking forward to working with you and your children in this new school year!
