In her own words . . .

“I am motivated by the ‘ah-ha!’ moments that my students discover every day. Instead of reading about digestion, for example, they watch animals on different feeds respond to changes in their diets. Teaching Agricultural Sciences gives me a way to help students connect their core subjects and their lives in a tactile and meaningful way. I am also inspired when students return to reveal how the academic and social/life lessons that they learned in my classes assisted them in their subsequent lives whether just making positive, informed food choices or being successful in veterinary and/or medical school.”

In the words of others . . . 

“[I quickly realized] that Jane was the real deal. She expects the same high standards from her students that she demands of herself. She listens to her students, parents and coworkers and responds with empathy without accepting excuses. Jane approaches even the most difficult situation or person with professionalism, tact and a sense that nothing is insurmountable or irresolvable.”
