Crystal is an educator at Tuatoo-Alofau Elementary School in American Samoa. She is responsible for managing, supervising, and educating the young minds in her classroom. Crystal recently served as a leader on her school's accreditation committee, the Social Studies Committee Chairperson, and currently serves as the English Language Arts Committee Chairperson. On top of these duties, Crystal also serves as an advisor with the University of Hawaii's Master of Education Curriculum Studies online program and a writing assistant with the University of Hawaii's Bachelor of Education Territorial Teacher Training Aid Program in American Samoa. Her duties include educating teachers, editing their work and analyzing their lessons and grammar. In addition, Crystal works as a Praxis Itutor, specializing in the Reading and Writing portions of this test. Since the Praxis Itest is a requirement for educators in the territory, tutors are in high demand but only those with high passing scores are considered for this position. Crystal is also currently enrolled in the University of Hawaii's Learning Design and Technology Ph.D. program and is expected to graduate Spring 2020. While Crystal does have quite a number of duties and responsibilities, she is excited at the prospect of being able to participate in the program.
