Crystal Carey

Language Arts/Assistant Principal

Crystal graduated from Oklahoma State University with a B.A. in English in 2001 and received a M.F.A. from St. Mary’s College in California in 2005. She has taught high school English, college composition, and creative writing courses for a total of thirteen years, eleven of which she has spent at Town & Country School. In 2017, one of her short stories was published in the online journal, Rumpus. Crystal was a finalist for Third Coast’s Fiction Prize in 2015, and in 2012 she won first place in Tulsa Public Library’s short story contest. She is on the editorial board for TU’s journal, Nimrod. She believes in providing students with the tools necessary to allow them to become enthusiastic seekers of knowledge and critical thinkers by asking them to question everything, and to examine all sides of literature and arguments, not just the one she provides.
