Meet the Instructors

Who Make Farm to School Fun!

Our instructors combine their passion for nutrition education and love of agriculture in a challenging and rewarding career.

Instructors hold degrees in Animal Science or Agriculture Education and some even have classroom teaching experience prior to Mobile Dairy Classroom.
