What about teaching excites you?
Getting students engaged with the content and making things relevant to them.

What was your “aha” moment when you realized the value of using agriculture as a vehicle to teach science?
This actually happened at the Chickenology workshop…when we teach genetics, I like to give real examples and this is hard to do with human traits as so few are inherited in as simple dominant/recessive and many are multiple allele. I loved all the examples of chicken traits and have rarely used these in the past, but will now!
