Today is a day that I LOVE my job!

By Monica Giffing
Agricultural Education teacher and FFA Advisor,
Springville High School

There are many reasons that I love my job, but today especially! It is so amazing to see students learn and grow and truly use what we teach them and what FFA and the Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) teaches them. 

Today, one of our lambs at the school lab got a very deep cut on its head, what a joy it was to watch Ashly Endicott (the Utah FFA Vet Science Proficiency Winner) use the skills she learned at the Rocky Mountain Vet Clinic as her SAE to assist this lamb. The other students, Christina, Aubrey, and Wesley, were great help when most kids would run the other way!

I am humbled that I get to work in such a profession that it brings me to tears when I see what some might see as a little thing (or a gross thing) I see as an amazing opportunity. I am truly doing what I love and loving what I do!
