Ms. Carissa Weber:
Carissa Weber grew up in Windsor, Colorado, and has had a joy for agriculture for most of her life. In high school, she was heavily involved in the Windsor FFA Chapter and was an FFA officer for all of the years she was eligible. She decided, after high school, that she wanted to become an Ag teacher! So, she started that journey at Northeastern Junior College then eventually transferred to Colorado State University to finish her Bachelors in Agricultural Education with a minor in history! Last year, she taught at the Eaton Ag Department to help her become a successful Agricultural Educator. In December, she graduated with her degrees and has spent her time subbing at local school districts, waiting for the perfect teaching role to come around. It finally has! She is so thankful to the Peetz community for welcoming me as she stepped into the role of interim Ag Teacher. She hopes to help make a wonderful impact on all of the students in the Peetz School!
