Hello! My name is Todd Crane.

pic of me


 It is my 4th year at Scholar Academy, I will be working with the 6-8 grades. I have a Bachelors Degree in Information Technology. I am married with 5 sons, and I served 9 years in the Air Force and during that moved 14 times.

During my time in the service I went to Afghanistan for a total of 14 months. I grew up in West Jordan and graduated from West Jordan High in 2001. My family had a small farm with chicken, ducks, goats, cows, horses, rabbits, and a vegetable garden.

I have also visited the Philippines where I learned to speak Cebuano, Illongo, Kinaray-a, and Capiznon. I enjoy making and eating Philippino foods like Lumpia and Adobo. I also enjoy eating sea food, cooking, making up recipies, and camping with my family.

Why I choose to Teach....

I have always enjoyed sharing the knowledge that I have, be it useful or just random facts, with people around me. I actually hoped at one point to become a Trainer for the position I had in the Air force, sadly I seperated before that became a reality. I had been a volunteer teacher many times for various groups (BSA, Cub Scouts, Sunday School) and even do a lot of Home Schooling of my own children. It was just a matter of time before it became my profession. I am love coming to work every day! Working with the students, even though I do struggle with most of their names, is very rewarding for me. Even when I have had a difficult morning, coming to work brightens my day!
