There are over 300 careers in the food, fiber, and natural resources areas.  Students in agriculture courses are being prepared for these careers through being enrolled in classwork, having a supervised agricultural experience, and participating in the FFA.  Students may enter the workforce right after high school or they may choose to go to a college or technical school.  Being in agriculture courses will prepare students for any of these options.  The link below is to the general classroom procedures for the agricultural sciences department.  You will also find the link to the Ag department handbook, class rules and expectations.  This document is important to success in these classes.  

I have been teaching at Wellsboro High School for 10 years.  I am originally from New Hampshire and I came to Pennsylvania to teach agriculture.   I attended The Pennsylvania State University for my Master's of Science in Agricultural and Extension Education.  My husband Greg owns his own timber management company and we own a small property in Wellsboro.  

Please use the tabs to the left to learn more about the courses offered in the agriculture program here at the high school.  Please see your child's portal webpage for specific assignments and updates for each class.  I can be contacted by phone at 724-3547 or by e mail at with any questions, concerns or suggestions.  I am available before school and after school to take calls if there are any concerns.
