Meet our Ag In The Classroom Coordinator!
We would also like to take this opportunity to introduce you to our shared Ag in the Classroom coordinator with Piatt County Farm Bureau, Sarah Harrington. Sarah was employed at Pioneer as a senior research associate prior to joining her husband at the farm and working alongside him for the last few years. She comes from an agricultural background and holds both a bachelor’s degree in agronomy and a master’s degree in crop ecology. She is a mother of three and farms with her husband locally in the Monticello area. She is excited to share her agricultural knowledge with students and teachers alike!
Online Ag in the Classroom Resources
Agriculture impacts every facet of human life. We are here to provide agriculture education opportunities and resources to the teachers, parents, and the community.
Looking for ways to engage your class with agriculture? DeWitt County Farm Bureau is happy to help point you in the right direction. Keep in mind, many of these lessons can be used to teach science, literature, and even math!
Illinois Agriculture in the Classroom (IAITC) and the state agriculture education system are offering online lessons and resources to help educators, parents, and students, especially while schools statewide are closed.
