Mark Crawford - P.E. Teacher
My name is Mark Crawford, and I've been teaching physical education for 27 years. I have a bachelor of Science in Education from the University of West Georgia and a master's degree from Jacksonville State University also in Science Education. One accomplishment I am proud of is starting the Road Running program in Carroll County which has become a program many schools have adopted. These clubs host races all through out Carroll County and promote running as a lifetime activity.
Some hobbies I enjoy are woodworking, mainly turning pens, bowls and other items on a lathe, running 5k's with my wife and golf. A goal my wife and I have is running a 5k in as many states as we can. So far we've run Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Nevada. My wife is Melissa and have one adult son, Zach (who is my main competition when playing golf). I truly enjoy teaching PE and strive to teach my students new and exciting activities, games, and skills that they may enjoy for a lifetime.

I will e-mail out race information for upcoming races throughout the year. You are NOT required to run in these races, but they are a fun way to get out on the weekend as a family and be active. Races are hosted by schools as well as other organizations. These races are fundraisers for the schools/organizations. The cost to run a race can be as low as $15 and as high as $35. These costs cover t-shirts, snacks at the end of the race and Awards.
Have fun at the RACES!!!
Students must sign up each year to participate.
