Cindy Cheney-Hunter Named
AITC Teacher of the Year for 2022
Cindy Cheney-Hunter is the sixth generation to live on her family’s farm. She began teaching five years ago, once her youngest (twins) entered kinder-garten. For the last three years, she has taught first grade at Pine Crest Elementary in Georgetown, which always featured Ag in the Classroom (AITC) in her curriculum – including incubating chicks and hatching ladybugs. She is now teaching sixth grade social studies and science at Mary Miller Jr High in Georgetown and is already planning to bring AITC to the middle school.
Vermilion County Farm Bureau provides presentations to EVERY elementary
school in Vermilion County. That means our Ag Literacy Coordinator
Missy Buhr can only get to each classroom four times a year.
To help teachers have an ag-themed lesson every month, AITC is providing
our new AGsploration lessons that provides materials and links to lessons
that can be featured in the month's that Missy isn't in their classroom.
If you'd like more information about the AGsploration options, contact
Missy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Shown in picture are (l to r): Cindy Hunter and Ag Literacy Coordinator Missy Buhr.
