Ms. Crittenden is currently in her first year teaching here at Our Lady of Lourdes. A member of the OLL Class of ’09, she went on to study English Literature and Music at the University of Rochester before transferring to New York University to complete bachelor degrees in both. In 2013, she was accepted into NYU’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences and received a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing with a concentration in fiction writing. 

Prior to re-joining the Lourdes community, Ms. Crittenden taught Introduction to Creative Writing: Fiction and Poetry at NYU and opened her own business as a lifestyle and event photographer. Throughout her career as a student, instructor, and photographer, her faith has remained a priority in her life. She is ecstatic to be here with us teaching Religion 11, coaching JV Volleyball, and aiding students with their writing along the way.
