Deidra Crain

Administrator of Academics 

Mrs. Deidra Crain

I have been an an educator for 14 years, teaching at the middle school, high school, and college level. Before taking my latest role as Administrator of Academics, I was an English teacher and instructional coach. Now I provide support to both teachers and students in a variety of areas including Problem Solving Team, data analysis, instructional design, curriculum writing, and professional development. I have a Master’s in Interactive Technology and an Ed.S. in Educational Psychology.  Currently I am working on my doctorate in Educational Leadership at Texas Tech University. I love research and have interests in strengths psychology, hope theory, educational equity, culturally responsive teaching, and self-efficacy.

Outside of school, I enjoy hanging out with my family and playing with my German Shepherd, Sadie Belle. I play guitar, write music, and sometimes attempt gardening and amateur photography. I love all things PHS and enjoy the exceptional faculty, staff, and students of Pelham High School.
