Agriculture Teacher

Cumberland Valley High School

Mechanicsburg, PA


Facilitates: Animal Science Community


What do you love to teach? My favorite subject to teach is Animal Science, specifically ruminant nutrition and anatomy/physiology. I'm always up for a good dissection opportunity!

Why do you love to teach? I love answering the question "When are we ever going to use this?" by making agricultural connections to subject matter students have learned in other classes. It is rewarding when students can see a practical applications of content they have previously learned.

Best thing you've found on CoP: My favorite 'gem' from CoP is an FFA Activity Grid to use for sub plans. Students pick one activity from the grid to complete when I'm out on another trip. A must-have for National FFA or NAAE Convention!

Why did you volunteer to facilitate? I wanted to share some of my Animal Science resources (and others I've found) in a meaningful way and encourage more discussion in the animal science community.


To volunteer, contact CoP administrator Julie Fritsch, or learn more by reading this facilitator position description.

Welcome to Communities of Practice!

Communities of Practice is a professional networking site for agricultural educators managed by the National Association of Agricultural Educators. Its purpose is to create a common place for anyone who is interested in agricultural education to share ideas and resources.

Where should I post?

See the Places box to your left? Expand the Spaces menu (it should be expanded by default already). From there, click on view sub-spaces to see which communities fall under each category. If you would rather see all the communities and sub-communities as a list, check out this map. CoP Community Map
