Mr. Crowley loves being a teacher, “After retiring from the music business, I wanted to change my karma, and become a rock star where singing and playing guitar wasn’t required.  I wanted a fanbase of thousands who would remember me for the rest of their lives and to never know where my influence stops.  I love being a teacher.”  In the year ahead, Mr. Crowley looks forward to helping students publish San Pedro High School’s first online newspaper and bring back the paper edition too.
