What did you do before you began teaching at Kaskaskia College? Taught high school agriculture for 9 years along with extra duties of FFA Sponsor, coaching baseball, and Dean of Students.
Who inspires you today and why? My students; Many teacher would agree they hope to make a lasting, memorable impact on their students though what and how we teach them. To make this impact through agriculture, students should be given everything agriculture education has to offer them. This includes excellent classroom education, personal practical experience, and high quality leadership skills that will make them successful in their career choice.
