Who WE Are – Robin Crossan

Robin Crossan’s dedication to the Colonial School District started when he began a 40-year career as a teacher at William Penn. He later spent 20 years as a Special Education teacher at Leach before retiring in 2014. As a member of the Board of Education, Crossan brings his experience as an educator to relate to issues concerning teachers, students, and their families.

Crossan is proud of the way the District has evolved over the years, especially now saying “In the last few years, Colonial has made a big change by moving to this college and career pathway starting at the middle schools and moving up to the high school. I think that really sets Colonial apart from what other districts are doing, and it’s the right thing to do for students.” Crossan, who had three of his four children graduate from William Penn, feels strongly about the District and wants every student to excel. He also knows the school board and administrators can’t make success happen alone, so he is a big proponent of the District’s Power of WE mantra. “It means we’re not separated, we’re united, and that everybody in the Colonial School District has a say in what happens.  I know the administration listens and responds…the results prove that and that’s why our District is so strong.”
