My Students

The students at JDLH are rising 10th and 11th graders that are looking to broaden their opportunities and experiences in agriculture towards a career that they are passionate about. This will be the schools inaugural year and as a beginning agricultural teacher I wish to provide my students with all of the opportunities that I had and more. These students will be apart of the Future Farmers of America organization where they will compete in various events to build their agricultural knowledge and skills.

The FFA strives to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success.

These students have a great work ethic and desire to succeed in this program and beyond.

Being able to provide the necessary materials for these students to succeed is important in giving them the best opportunities to be successful in high school. I want each of them to reach their full potential and accomplish all of their hopes and dreams.

My Project

Trail cameras are a pivotal tool used to monitor wildlife populations. It allows a biologist to understand how healthy their wildlife populations are such as deer, turkey, and bear. These cameras will be used for many projects throughout the year to monitor certain areas and understand wildlife animal behavior.

Hands-on learning is at the center of agricultural education and with these cameras it will allow students to be in the field learning the ends and outs to wildlife behavior.

Trail cameras allow students to study animal diets, habitat, prime activity time, and various other behavioral traits.

Having these skills for a aspiring wildlife biologist can set students up for a successful career. I hope you allow me to give them the opportunity to succeed in my classroom.
