    Hello my name is Mrs.Crawford , some may know me as the formerly Ms.Aldridge as I was recently married in March. I grew up in a small town named Caswell County where we raised tobacco and currently still raise registered Black Angus Beef Cows. I graduated from NC State Univeristy with a BS in Agriculture & Extension Education. I love that the Agriculture progam here at South Iredell offers students the ability to work hands on with small animal in the classroom and livestock animals in our pasture.  

    This year I will be teaching Animal Science 1 , Animal Science 2 -Large Animal, Animal Science 2-Small Animal , and  Vet Assissting Classes (Honors Classes are availble for all animal science classes) 
     
    My Classroom Mission

    Agriculture education prepares students for successful careers and a lifetime of informed choices in the global agriculture, food, fiber and natural resources systems. Agriculture Education is made up of three components including Classroom/Lab activites, FFA, and SAE (Supervised Agriculture Expereince Projects )  
    :)
      My goal for students is for them to understand where their food comes from and to learn leadership and resposibility and to acheive their goals through agriculture and the FFA. I extend a welcome out to all students to join the FFA and particiapte in the oppertunity to travel, compete, and become leaders through this club which not only prepares them for the future but is sure to leave them with lifelong learning experiences and further enhances their agriculture experiences.
