Meet Alumni Educator Chuck Crawford

Chuck Crawford teaches AP Environmental Science and Advanced Research in Science at Dublin Jerome High School. In his 19th year of teaching, Crawford’s favorite part of the job is interacting with students and seeing their development over the year. A demo plot on school grounds allows Crawford to incorporate hands-on ag-related activities and lessons in his classes.

Would you recommend the FTW workshop to other educators?

Yes! This gives us the opportunity to share the story of one of the biggest industries in the state and help people understand that the ag industry isn’t just a farmer in a tractor.

What kind of outreach activities are you hoping to do as an FTW alumni educator?

I’d like to share information about precision farming.

If you could develop the perfect crop, what would you develop?

One that replenishes nutrients in the soil so as to not need crop rotation or additional fertilizers.
