Hi! My name is Hillary Crips and I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of CRCDS! I have lived in St. Louis my whole life until moving to Dallas in September 2018 for a wonderful job opportunity for my husband, Cody! He is from Houston, so we are both excited to be in Texas! I studied Fashion Merchandising and Business at The University of Missouri for my undergrad degree and had actually never thought about being a teacher. I had been volunteering and working at my church during college in the children’s ministry problem and soon realized that I wanted to pursue a degree in Early Childhood Education after college. God was clearly telling me to follow this gift of mine. I ended up going to a school in St. Louis to receive my Master’s in Teaching. I have taught first grade for the past two years at a Christian school in St. Louis!
Favorite Scripture: Psalm 62:1-2 For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken.
Family Members: My husband, Cody. We were married in March 2017. Our two yellow labs, Franny and Bogey!
Hobbies, Interests: Any time spent with my family. Cody and I love to play golf and tennis together. We also love taking our dogs on long walks together. I love spending time with friends and enjoying time in community together.
Dream Vacation: Anywhere tropical!
