Ag in the Classroom Names Teacher of the Year

Ag in the Classroom Names Teacher of the Year
What does the cow say? Third-graders in Kingfisher know the answer. They also know where their food comes from, how to eat a healthy lunch and what farmers do for their community. This is all part of the fun of being in Lisa Stormís class at Heritage Elementary.


Storm has been named 2014 Teacher of the Year for the statewide Ag in the Classroom program coordinated by the Oklahoma Dept. of Agriculture, Food and Forestry and the Oklahoma State Dept. of Education. (Storm is pictured with her third-grade class from Heritage Elementary in Kingfisher.)


Ag in the Classroom teacher workshops, curriculum ideas and online resources are available at http://oklahoma4h.okstate.edu/aitc/. Storm has become such a fan of the AITC lesson plans for Smartboards that she regularly shares her own ideas with other teachers at annual AITC conferences. Her popular sessions are usually standing-room only as she shows other educators how to communicate basic agricultural knowledge.


In addition to creating original Smartboard lessons, Storm has successfully applied for grants from the Oklahoma Pork Council to teach her class how the food and fiber system works. This year she invited Mike Schulte, Executive Director of the Oklahoma Wheat Commission, to be a pen pal with her class. Her students also created an award-winning video in the AITC Oklahoma Agriculture - Oklahoma Strong contest.


"My favorite thing about teaching is it allows me to be very creative. I constantly look for innovative ways to bring my students memorable learning experiences. Ag in the Classroom curriculum is a combination of solid agricultural knowledge, research-based learning objectives, and creative hands-on learning," Storm said.


Storm will be honored at Ag Day on March 26 by Southwest Dairy Farmers, Farm Bureau Women's Leadership, and the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food, and Forestry. The annual celebration of agriculture takes place in the state capitol in Oklahoma City. It is open to the public and all events are free.


Storm is a National Board Certified Teacher with 14 years teaching experience. She received a BS from Oklahoma State University and a MS from the University of Central Oklahoma. She is married to John Storm, a certified public accountant with Storm and Hauser, and has two children.
