Mr. Ed Crawford
My name is Ed Crawford and I teach 8th grade science. I was born in Nampa and spent my young life in various places in the Pacific Northwest. After graduating from high school in western Oregon, I enlisted in the U.S. army and spent three years as an artilleryman.
When my enlistment was up I started school at Northwest Nazarene College I graduated with honors and three years later completed the requirements for my teaching certificate. My first teaching job was in Middleton in the old elementary school, and I have been involved in education in Middleton since then. I have taught 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 7th, and 8th grades, and I was the assistant principal and the Heights for a few years. During that time I completed my masters in curriculum design at NNU and completed the requirements for my certification as a school administrator.
The philosophy I have always tried to follow and the one thing I hope all students learn is to always make choices that give me more choices. I may not always get what I want, but at least I have options.
