The purpose of teaching is to empower students to learn. It is my belief as a teacher I must first love to learn and be willing to share this passion with my students. It is important to encourage students to learn subject material and accept their mistakes as opportunities to learn. As an educator of the agricultural industry, my greatest task is to provide students with the knowledge and applicable lessons they will need and use to further inform consumers about food and fiber production.
As a fifth-generation agriculturalist, I am enthusiastic about the industry and wanted to bring my passion and love for agriculture to the classroom. I want to always encourage students to recognize their greatest potential.
