In 2010, Mrs. Crider was awarded the Lilly Endowment Teacher Creativity Fellowship Grant and traveled to London, England to research one of her favorite book characters Harry Potter. She also visited the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, Florida for further study of the world created by J.K. Rowling. After her travels, she returned to Smoky Row and painted a mural for the school's media center. Mrs. Crider also hosted a Harry Potter Party at the school to celebrate the completion of the Mural and to share with the students and staff at Smoky Row her wonderful adventure she had that summer studying Harry Potter!
