Mrs. Cranford

Hello!  My name is Natalie Cranford and you can find me in the art room! 

I am happy to be a graduate of Mt. Pleasant Elementary, Middle, and High School!  After graduating college from Gardner-Webb University, my husband and I stayed in Cleveland County where I taught third grade for seven years.  I then followed another passion by teaching art to students in Kindergarten through fourth grade.  During my time in Cleveland County I also taught preschoolers and adults at the local arts council.  My family moved back to Cabarrus County in 2020 where I taught at Mt. Pleasant Elementary for a short time.  In the fall of 2020 I was blessed to begin teaching art at Mt. Pleasant Middle School!  I love art, getting to know my students, and completing fun projects.  Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions!
