My Students

Living in a rural community, agriculture is a vital part of our local economy. My students range from 7th through 12th grades who see agriculture around them everyday. All 7th and 8th graders will come through my door for a semester each year to learn introductory lessons about agriculture. This allows all students to get a taste of agriculture education before entering high school.

In my classroom, my students learn the basic information about agriculture, food and natural resources.

Through these subjects, my classes teach students a wide variety of skills, including science, math, communications, leadership, management and technology through hands-on activities and projects.

My Project

Agricultural education is delivered through three interconnected components: classroom or laboratory instruction, experiential learning (usually take place outside of the classroom, supervised by the agriculture instructor), and leadership education (delivered through a student organization called the National FFA Organization). FFA is a dynamic youth organization within agricultural education that changes lives and prepares students for premier leadership, personal growth and career success.

In order for students to participate they must dress officially, but many students cannot afford to purchase the attire themselves.

This project will fill our 'check out' closet with all the necessary items for FFA Offical Dress! FFA Official Dress consists of the an Official Jacket (purchased from the National FFA), an official FFA tie or scarf, a white button up shirt, either black slacks or a black skirt, black socks or nylons, and black dress shoes.

For each student to purchase the entire uniform on their own, they usually will spend well over $100. Many students and parents cannot afford this type of purchase, which definitely limits a students ability to be successful in our FFA organization. Our FFA chapter wants to help bridge the economic gap and help encourage more students to participate without limitations.
