Andress to start student-teaching at PBL High School in January

URBANA — The University of Illinois Agricultural Education program has placed a student teacher, John Andress, with agricultural science instructors Mike White and Doug Anderson at Paxton-Buckley-Loda High School.

From January through April, Andress will be teaching classes at PBL High School, including introduction to agriculture, horticulture, agricultural science, agricultural mechanics and agribusiness. The student teaching experience will also include advising FFA chapter activities, such as career development events, leadership conferences and National FFA Week promotions.

Andress will be supervised on site by his Agricultural Education Program advisors.

“The student-teaching experience is the capstone for the undergraduate education program,” said Gary Ochs, advisor to student teachers in the Agricultural Education Program at the University of Illinois. “Student-teaching with high school agricultural teachers, like Mr. Andress is doing with Mr. White and Mr. Anderson, becomes an extension of the University of Illinois Agricultural Education Program.”
