Teachers of TN: Jackie Vester

“I was very proud of how my statewide dual credit agribusiness students performed on the test to receive college credit. The students accepted my challenge of pushing themselves and setting the goal of attaining credit. Watching each student beam with pride as they received those passing scores was very rewarding as a teacher. I would love for every student to pass the course and receive college credit, but it is more important to me that they exit my class more prepared for postsecondary opportunities than when they entered.”
