Description

Class Experience

I am a former middle school - high school agricultural education teacher where I taught specialty classes including introduction to agriculture, veterinary science, introduction to animal science, plant science, greenhouse, agriscience 1 and agriscience 2 as well as welding fabrication, various welding classes, career technical education, physical education and earth science for 6 years. 
I have competed in horse judging on both the high school and collegiate levels, as well as served as a coach for an FFA horse judging team. As an agricultural education teacher, I hosted many horse judging competitions and am a life long horsewoman, having ridden horses since I was a child and trained them during high school and college. I currently live and work on a ranch where we raise and train our own horses, as well as manage 100% of their care. I also served as an adjunct professor to our local junior college as a welding professor. I am a life long agriculturalist, having been involved in the cattle and horse industry for my entire life, and serving multiple roles in the industry from National Ambassador to Producer - my current role, I have assisted in veterinary care for multiple vets, helping with surgeries, ultrasounds of both horses and cattle, various forms of testing for pathogens, and more . I live and work on a working cattle ranch with my family, where I homeschool my four children who range in ages from 6-13. I also am the president of our local homeschool co-op and director of our county science fair board. 
students will be expected to spend 1-2 hours outside of class on various assignments. 
a detailed rubric with necessary supplies will be posted two weeks before class is to begin, as well as students will need a notebook or three ring binder for this course. Handouts and printables will be posted before class.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
learner progress will be assessed through letter grades, via participation, assignments and tests. 
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
The Horse, 2nd edition by J. Warren Evan and The Complete Equine Veterinary Manual by Tony Pavord were the books I used to help design the curriculum
