There is a deep spark of joy that proves to be transformational in watching a shift from bored, disengaged minds to that of young adults who are passionate, driven, and innately curious about the world around them.
We are teaching more than just kids; we are shaping the future of our nation and society as we foster awe, inspiration, and a spirit of entrepreneurial leadership by planting a seed of hope.
My students come from a wide variety of backgrounds, their home lives, educational successes, and life experiences drastically fluctuating from one child to another. The challenge is not only to meet these diverse needs, but to inspire a sense of awe in each student, to give them the belief in themselves they so often lack, and to lead them to the tools they need to build successful experiences for themselves as they grow. Most importantly, I aim to inspire minds and hearts by presenting aspects of each student that often, even they themselves have not yet discovered. In turn, they, unknowingly, gift me with inspiration and hope each day.
It's time to add four-legged critters to our program through the addition of goats! Our students need livestock on campus to support our curriculum and build our agriculture program.
The best learning happens through practicing content in hands-on activities!
By adding the electric fence netting, equipment, water and feed supplies, as well as other needed health supplies, we will be able to add goats to our program for our students to care for, raise, and eventually breed to practice animal husbandry skills. This not only directly aligns with multiple standards throughout grades 6-12, but allows our students to gain unforgettable experiences working with livestock that will hone learned skills, add to their resumes, and spark an interest in continuing to work in agriculture throughout their careers and lives!
