Someone brought this turtle to me because it was found in the road and I am a science teacher. It is eating ok. What should I do for it.

A crack in a shell can be serious because infection can get inside the body and it can be very difficult to treat once inside.

The tortoise should see a vet. You might also contact a tortoise rescue center in your area.
