With a lifelong passion for agriculture and teaching others I look forward to being your instructor.
My knowledge and experience will be put to work for you. My educational experience began with a BS in Agriculture Education from Washington State University (minors in Ag Technology Management and Agriculture Economics.) I then continued with a Masters Degree from Iowa State University (Professional in Agriculture) and over 14 years experience as a High School Agriculture Instructor (courses in Plant Science, Animal Science, Welding, Construction, Ag Mechanics, Horticulture, Ag Business.)
My experience includes operating my own farm in which I raise hay, small grains (wheat and barley), cattle and hogs. I also sell firewood and operate an internet business (Miller's Woodcutting) that provides plans for the construction of firewood related machinery (log splitters, firewood processors, skidding arches, etc.)
