Hi I'm Pauline Crane

I grew up in Provo, Utah. I teach high school in Concord, California. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I have seven children and twenty-four grandchildren. I earned my bachelor's degree after raising my children and started teaching school. My husband and I enjoy traveling to visit our children and grandchildren and also traveling around the world. I have taught English and English Language Development in High School for the last eleven years. I love this age group and want to really make a difference for good in their lives.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ brings so much happiness and peace to my life. I have found that the principles of the Gospel are the best way to teach and bring up our children to be happy also. I know that following Jesus Christ will bring joy to all of those who commit their lives to living these principles. When we try to be like the Savior and live God's commandments, we are always trying to be better. We serve others and help them see God's love in their lives and the plan that He has for each of them to return to His presence. That is why I am a Mormon. It brings me great joy!

How I live my faith

I believe living the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the best way to show others how I feel about God and His Son. I try to treat others with love and respect. I serve in the women's organization and help train and teach women leaders in the area where we live. As leaders, we plan events that will serve the women in our area and also provide activities and food for different meetings and conferences. My husband and I have recently been called on a mission to Auckland New Zealand where we will teach young adults and help train teachers. I am very excited for this opportunity to continue to teach the youth. When I am teaching them, especially the principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, I feel at home.
