After graduating from Utah State University in 2014, Sydney Crook taught 5th grade in Blackfoot, Idaho for 2 years. She then moved online teaching ESL to kids between the ages of 3-15 years old living in China. She will start as an online elementary teacher for IDLA during the 2020-2021 school year.
Although Sydney was born and raised in Utah, she has lived in Idaho since 2014 and considers herself a true Idahoen! She loves spending time with her husband (who is also a teacher) and her two young kids doing activities such as camping, hiking, 4-wheeling and anything else outside.
