Why I Teach Ag: Karrie Cox    
Tuesday, April 5, 2022 | Author: Texas FFA News

What ag education classes do you teach?
I teach 7th and 8th Grade Principles of AFNR, Small Animal Management and Agriculture Leadership.
Why do you teach ag?
I teach ag because every day is different, every trip is different, and every competition is different. I love kids, animals, and traveling, and this job combines it all. I can't imagine doing anything else, and I am so very thankful for all the opportunities I have been given to maybe touch even one kid's life.
What is your favorite classroom memory as a teacher?
How in the world do you pick this? I just love it when the light bulb comes on a for a kid or when you teach them something that they have never seen or heard about. Or maybe when they do something they didn't know they could do or ever even tried and come back the next day ready to do it again.

What is your favorite FFA memory?
Again this is hard to pick, but the National Convention trip in 2016 was a great deal of fun. Those kids held a special place in my heart, and that trip is one I won't ever forget. That entire year was memorable.

Why do you believe that ag education is so important?
Ag education is so important because kids are given so many opportunities through this program. The scholarship money alone is reason enough to want to join and get active, but the learning, experiences, and opportunities are endless. I don't believe anything else comes close or compares to what is being done in and outside the classroom through FFA and agriculture education. I'm very proud to be part of it.
