Kimberly High School, Kimberly, Idaho

The Kimberly School District, located in Kimberly Idaho, is currently searching for an agricultural instructor to fill a position in its agricultural education department. 

The Kimberly School District is located outside of Twin Falls in the Magic Valley Region of Idaho.  The Magic Valley has continued to see an increase in the growth of its agriculture sector and most recently significant growth in the area of food processing.  The local economy is highly influenced by the dairy industry, row crop farming, manufacturing and tourism.

The Kimberly School District has a strong reputation in the local area and attracts many families who are new to the area.  This reputation has resulted in an increase in student populations, throughout the district, increasing the need for additional buildings and staff.  The Kimberly School Board is dedicated to supporting a rigorous curriculum and to continue to fill the needs through staffing and construction. 

The agriculture facility at Kimberly High School was constructed four years ago and developed to handle additional growth in the future.  The program offers a diverse array of classes, to over 70% of the students that attend Kimberly High School, providing students with a hands on environment for agricultural education.  The program provides curriculum ranging from agricultural mechanics to science based curriculum providing state science credit for students.  The program cooperates with post-secondary institutions to provide both dual and technical credit and collaborates with other departments to implement district wide areas of emphasis.

The Kimberly FFA Chapter has grown to include 100 plus members and been recognized as a 3 star chapter by the National FFA Organization.  Chapter members have experienced success through serving the state in leadership positions, career development events (multiple state winners and national top 5 finishes), community service, and chapter recreational events.

The addition of this position will allow the program to reach students at the middle school level and expand course offerings to high school students.  The ideal candidate would be willing to contribute to the success of the program by working as a team player to expand all areas of the agricultural education model.  This individual would have a strong background in animal science, natural resources management, and agricultural business. 

Requirements:

Idaho Vocational Agriculture Certification (or ability to obtain)

                Natural Science and Consumer Economics (preferred but not required)

A background in agriculture or agricultural education

Willingness to act as co-advisor for the FFA Chapter and participate in student SAE projects

Willingness to participate in career development activities and professional associations

Willingness to take on leadership roles within the school
