Mrs. Barbara Sperl, Principal


Welcome to Crawford Elementary. It’s been my pleasure to sit at the helm of this National Blue Ribbon School for the past 6 years.

My background includes teaching 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 6th grades for over 17 years. I’ve taught at Tok School, part of the Alaska Gateway School District, Crawford Elementary and Ticasuk Brown Elementary, both part of the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District.

My husband of 46 years and I are transplanted Alaskans, arriving in the spring of 1974. We’ve lived in several towns in Southeast Alaska before settling here in Fairbanks in about 1985. We have 3 grown children, 7 grandsons and 2 granddaughters.
