Teaching Duties

  • High School Agriculture

   My husband Danny and I live on grain farm in rural Shelbyville. My husband is an avid tractor puller and spend much of the summer watching him pull around Illinois and Missouri. If I am not coaching FFA teams or at school, I am helping on the farm.
The best part of my job is teach "farmer" and go home and play "farmer".
