My Students

I teach both agriculture and metal shop courses. The students I teach are talented young agriculturists with a will to learn. They are very interested in developing their skills in the greenhouse, metal shop, and in their livestock projects, as well as the classroom. Some students live on ranches, and others have no agricultural experience. They come from a very small community in northeastern Wyoming where budget cuts have had a negative effect in their homes and our school.

My students are amazingly talented and hungry to learn, but they are limited by our rural location and limited access to supplies.

We have many projects going on in our classroom and shop including ruminant dissection, crop experiments in the greenhouse, and major metal fabrication. Our most recent dream is of a school farm where students can learn about livestock and crop production through hands-on, project-based learning initiatives.

My Project

A few days ago the Fire Marshal came to inspect the shop and classroom. Our air hose did not contain the appropriate fittings and was a safety hazard. The hose and reel were also shot due to the heavy use and age of the hose and reel.

A new 50ft hose in the shop will give the students a wider range to use the air and be much safer than the old hose (which is now out of the shop leaving us without air).

We use the air hose on that wall for various uses such as plasma cutting, running the press, and using air tools.
