TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Since July 2013, I have been teaching agricultural education to 7th-12th grade students in a rural, Oklahoma school district. Although we are in a small town, our school is considered 5A, and we graduate 125-150 high school seniors each year. I work in a three teacher ag-ed program that has a long tradition of excellence. I have taught Ag Explorations (7th/8th grade); Agricultural Leadership; Agricultural Communications; Agriscience II; and Introduction to Horticulture. In addition to working in the classroom, my students have been active and successful in many areas within the FFA on a state and national level, including the National Chapter Award, proficiencies, SAE grants, public speaking, CDEs, and LDEs.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style has evolved since I started! I use to do more teacher led discussions and lectures with guided notes, and I did mostly traditional tests for learning assessments. Now, I am more prone to do group activities, inquiry-based learning, group projects, and student led discussions. As an agricultural education teacher, I am rely heavily on independent study when working with my older students in the program.
