There are many facets about being an Ag. Teacher that excite me, from building leaders to training winning teams to traveling, but perhaps the thing that excites me the most is look on their face when I make believers out of them. Everything from classwork, contests, show projects and everything in-between.
What excites me is the fact that the industry is always changing. If I were to be hired the teach, what I teach one year could be something totally different the next.

I'm excited at the opportunity to keep learning about the industry as it changes and being able to pass that knowledge onto students as years progress.
