Shenandoah County Agricultural Education Teachers Earn National Recognitions
Article and Pictures by Susan Smith
Sherry and Derek will be recognized for their accomplishments at the NAAE National Convention, which will be held November 18-22 in Nashville, Tennessee. This dual recognition is of special significance to Derek. He explained, “Being named the Region 6 winner in Ideas Unlimited at the same time that Mrs. Heishman is being recognized as Region 6 Agriscience Teacher of the Year is particularly meaningful for me because Mrs. Heishman was my agriscience teacher at Central High School when I was a student there from 1998-2002. Not only was Mrs. Heishman one of the driving forces behind my becoming an educator, but it was her modeling of innovative, student-centered learning that laid the foundation for my own teaching style.
Hands-on, inquiry-based learning describes the teaching methods that both Sherry and Derek employ in their classrooms. According to Joe Exline (Classroom to Concept Workshop), inquiry-based learning is not the traditional mastery of content, not memorizing facts and information, but rather focuses on students’ learning problem-solving skills and producing knowledge that can “be widely applied.” Inquiry-based learning does not focus on “what we know.” Inquiry-based learning focuses on “how we come to know.”
“I am a guide,” Sherry explained, “allowing the student’s natural curiosity to direct his or her learning.”
“Hands-on, inquiry-based learning in the field of agriculture allows students to both ask and discover answers to many of the questions and challenges facing agriculture today,” wrote Derek in his application for the Ideas Unlimited award.
