Mrs. Gail Crossley

My name is Gail Crossley. I am the Primary Communication teacher at LISD STEM Academy @ Donald.  I enjoy teaching young children and watching them learn and grow. I believe in the potential of every student, and feel honored to be part of a team that provides an environment where students are encouraged to seek, learn, and grow.

I grew up in Jackson, Mississippi where both of my parents were educators.  One of my favorite things to do while growing up was to “play school” with my older sister.  I am a graduate of The University of Southern Mississippi (Southern Miss), where I meet my husband of 36 years.  We have two adult children, a son and a daughter who are former Donald students.

My husband retired from the U.S. Army after 23 years of service and he is currently the Director of the JROTC Programs for Ft. Worth ISD.  As a military family, we have lived in Colorado, Kentucky, Germany, and Texas.  We fell in love with Texas and decided to make our home in Flower Mound in 1996.

Besides my faith, I enjoy reading, listening to music, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.
