About Me
Biographical Sketch: 

Hello, My name is Aaron Crawford and I've taught Elementary Physical Education for 11 years---all here at Bacon. I work as a whitewater river guide in the summers on the Cache la Poudre river and enjoy hiking/backpacking, fishing, photography, gardening and road bicycling. I'm currently working towards my master's degree in Adventure P.E. through Plymouth State University and Project Adventure. My wife and I enjoy eating good food and spending time with our 12 year old chocolate lab, Bailey. I'm passionate about teaching physical education, because p.e. allows students to learn about themselves and gain confidence through skill development and games and activities. My goal is for each student to find a sport or activity that they love to do and do this for the rest of their life.
