Oakland teacher

Oakland High School agriscience teacher Rachel Ralston recently received course certification.

Oakland High School agriscience teacher Rachel Ralston recently attended an eight-day development institute to become certified to teach the Introduction to Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources Curriculum.

Ralston was one of 24 educators from nine states to attend the institute at Bolton High School near Memphis.

During the institute, Ralston spent 65 hours working through nearly every lesson in the year-long curriculum and learning how to deliver lessons in an inquiry-based way that will shift focus in the classroom from teacher-led to student-directed learning.
