Hello! I am so excited to be teaching agriculture at Greenback this year. I am from McMinn County where I have a family beef cattle farm. I graduated from the University of Tennessee with a bachelors in Agriculture Education. I have a passion for agriculture and strive to give our students the best experience possible. I'm also the schools FFA Advisor. The FFA is a national organization that focuses on building skills for careers in agriculture. The FFA is not just about farming. FFA is focused on building skills in leadership, speaking, and careers that will benefit students in the work force. Students have many opportunities in my classes for hands on experiences whether with animals, plants, or working on projects in the agriculture mechanics shop.This year we are constructing a greenhouse for the agriculture department with the help of the construction department. I think this will be an amazing opportunity for our school and community. I am looking forward to an amazing school year!
