Hi! My name is Jordan Atkins, and I teach Middle Grades AgriScience. Agriculture Education is an introduction to the fundamental principles of scientific agriculture. The course introduces the major areas of agricultural production, introductory skills in knowledge in agricultural science, and agri-related technologies. Students will also be introduced to studies in leadership skills through the FFA, basic horticultural practices, forestry/natural resources, basic animal science, careers in agriculture as well as an introduction to the AgriScience. Students will have opportunities to compete regionally in Land Judging, Cattle Show Team, Meat ID, Environmental Natural Resources, Ag Technology and Equipment ID, and many more.
I am excited about this opportunity to share my knowledge in the field of agriculture with the student at Cedartown Middle School.
