Mr. Michael Crawford
Mr. Crawford is a physics teacher here at Peachtree Ridge High School. He has been teaching here for three years and really looks forward to teaching this year and using his love for science and others to influence his students. He has many passions in life and teaching is just one of them. He really enjoys watching and playing various sports; basketball, football, tennis, and others. He is a die-hard Atlanta Hawks, Atlanta Falcons, and Ohio State football fan. He also enjoys watching movies of almost any genre and really revels in classic or older movies. He loves incorporating his passions into his teaching and integrating real-life scenarios and relevant topics into physics.
He got his undergraduate degree in physics from Georgia College and State University. He studied many different aspects of the field and became versed in many different subjects during this time. He then decided to stay at GCSU and pursue his master’s degree in teaching. He graduated with his Master’s of Arts in teaching, or commonly referred to as MAT. During his master’s program he learned how to become an effective teacher.
