Hello Firebird Families! 

I am thrilled to welcome you to another exciting school year at Freedom Traditional Academy!  As the principal, it is my honor to lead a school with such a rich tradition of education, dedication, and community spirit.  

At Freedom, we believe that every child is unique and has the potential to achieve greatness. Our dedicated staff is committed to providing a nurturing and challenging educational environment. We strive to cultivate a love of learning, critical thinking skills, and a sense of responsibility in all our students. Our mission is to provide a well-rounded educational experience in which students develop great citizenship and achieve academic excellence through rigorous, accelerated, and purposeful curriculum while supported by an engaged and involved family community. We achieve this by fostering a safe environment where every student feels valued and encouraged to reach their full potential. We emphasize the importance of strong character and community involvement, teaching our students the values of kindness, respect, and perseverance.  We are fortunate to have a vibrant and supportive community that plays a vital role in our school’s success. Parents and guardians are our essential partners in the education process, and we welcome and encourage your involvement. Whether through volunteering, participating in school events, or joining our PTA, your engagement makes a significant difference.  As we embark on this school year, I encourage you to stay connected with us through our website, newsletters, and social media channels. These platforms will keep you informed about school events, important updates, and the many accomplishments of our students and staff.  Thank you for entrusting us with your child’s education. Together, we can create a positive and enriching educational experience for every student. 

For the Kids,   

Connie Wolford

Greetings Firebird Families! 

It is an honor to introduce myself to the Freedom Traditional Academy community! My name is Amy Crow and I am excited to join the team of students, teachers, and staff committed to preparing our students to be successful, productive citizens and lifelong learners. 

 I graduated with my Bachelor's Degree and earned my teaching certificate from the College of Education at Arizona State University. Later, I completed my Master of Arts with a focus in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of North Carolina, Greensboro. I recently returned to Arizona State to start another Master's degree, this time, in Educational Leadership, so FORKS UP!  This is my 19th year in education. I started my teaching career building a dance program and coaching Spiritline at Valley Vista High School. Then, I moved into a coaching role as a Teaching and Learning Specialist and most recently, served as an Interim Assistant Principal at El Mirage Elementary. So while this is a new position for me, it is one that I am sincerely excited and prepared to embrace.   I passionately believe that every child deserves a well-rounded education where they can focus on developing citizenship, academic excellence, and the practice of becoming a lifelong learner. It is a privilege to be a part of your child’s educational journey as an advocate as they soar to success. I am sincerely delighted to be a Freedom Firebird!
