Why I Teach Ag: Danny Reaves    
Tuesday, June 15, 2021 | Author: Texas FFA News

What ag education classes do you teach?

I teach Livestock Production, Principles of AFNR, Ag Structures Design, and Fabrication.

Why do you teach ag?
Teaching ag is very enjoyable. It is a life choice, not just a career. Student feedback, impacting the future of our youth, and guiding them to something they like is rewarding. Hopefully, I can make a difference in my student’s lives for the better.

What is your favorite classroom memory?

The  “ah-ha” moment when a student gets it, like teaching a kid to weld, and then they see the proof of their hard work.

What is your favorite FFA memory?

One of my favorite memories is when my oldest son John was in my chapter and won several scholarships his senior year. John received over $40,800 his last year in ag. Another favorite was when my chapter conducting team had all three of my kids and my niece on the team, and they made it to the state LDE contest at SHSU.

Why do you believe that ag education is so important?

We live in a world disconnected from the land. Therefore, someone must educate the vast population to understand the benefits and challenges modern agriculture faces in the 21st century to our world.
