McCutcheon High School is excited to welcome Reanna Lowery, a new Career & Technical Education (CTE) teacher, to the faculty for the 2023-2024 school year. Ms. Lowery is a graduate of Purdue University, where she studied Agricultural Education and Political Science. She is passionate about agricultural education because she believes that it is important for everyone to have a basic understanding of where their food comes from and how the agriculture industry works.
"My content area is something that everyone relates to and uses in their daily life, but they don't always know much about it," said Lowery. "From the clothes we wear to the food we eat, every person should be educated about the agriculture industry and its components."
In her classroom, Lowery hopes that students will "gain confidence, personal and leadership development, and technical skills that would prepare them to successfully go onto post-secondary education or enter the workforce." She also wants her students to have a positive experience in her class and to develop a love of learning.
Lowery chose to work at McCutcheon because she was drawn to the school's "large rural community that cares for its students and faculty." She is excited to build rapport and relationships with students, other faculty members, and the community as a whole. She also hopes that the school’s Ag Ed program and FFA chapter can make a positive difference in the lives of students and the surrounding areas through community service and personal development.
"I am excited to be a part of the McCutcheon community and to help students learn about the importance of agriculture," said Lowery. "I look forward to getting to know my students and their families, and I am committed to creating a positive and supportive learning environment for all."
Welcome to McCutcheon, Ms. Lowery!
