Ag in the Classroom

Kelly) You can take the girl out of the farm, but you can’t take the farm out of the girl. Teresa Schulze, a 5th and 6th grade teacher at Eisenhower Elementary in Norton, Kansas, always knew that she wanted to teach from a very young age. She had a natural affinity when it came to working with children, integrating agriculture into her classroom as well. Growing up she was an active member in 4-H. Schulze’s father was also an agriculture education teacher for over 30 years and her mother was a daycare provider and a parent educator at an elementary school. Schulze married Brandon Schulze, a farmer and cattle supplement salesman and in this furthered her interest in integrating agriculture into her classroom. Kansas Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom has been very helpful for Schulze throughout her years of teaching. She attended K-Fact courses and conferences and found that they were very resourceful and one of the most rewarding trainings in her teaching career. To learn more about Teresa Schulze and the lesson plans she uses to integrate agriculture into her classroom everyday, visit the Teacher Feature sidebar on our website at ksagclassroom.org.
