MAHOMET, Ill. (WCIA) — This Teacher to Know says it’s all about seeing her students succeed. Jennifer Wherley teaches several AG-related classes at Mahomet-Seymour High School.
She also helps her students run an AG supply store, for animal feed, out of the school. It’s open during the school year and is currently under construction.
Wherley says it gives her students real-life experience and they can use it in their future careers. She’s been teaching for 17-years, 11 here.
She says staying in touch with her students is the best part, as well as the impact she hopes she’s having on their futures.
She teaches everything from an introduction to AG to the business side. The AG store is a big part of her responsibilities.
