GNG teacher leader Todd Tayloe visits Commodity Classic 2019

Todd Tayloe, teacher at Carroll High School and GrowNextGen teacher leader, talks about going to Commodity Classic 2019, America’s largest farmer-led, farmer-focused agricultural and educational event:

Commodity Classic 2019 was such a wonderful experience. I learned that agriculture includes every aspect of STEM. Yes, agriculture is the farmers and agronomists, but it is also so much more: all kinds of engineers, geneticists, computer scientists, programmers, veterinarians, financial advisors, insurance agents, electricians, plumbers, mechanics, accountants, communication majors, chemists, environmentalist, lawyers, politicians, and many more jobs that I am missing. It is astonishing how many avenues students can take to get into a field of agriculture . Unfortunately, in my part of Ohio, my students don’t even know they exist. Thanks to GrowNextGen and the Ohio Soybean Council, I learned a lot at Commodity Classic, and I’m planning on bringing that back to my classroom as many ways as possible.
