About Our Teachers

Mrs. Christopher

I am an Agriculture Teacher and FFA Advisor. I graduated from Worthington High School and received by Bachelor’s Degree in Agricultural Education from South Dakota State University. I previously have taught at Hills-Beaver Creek Secondary School and Mountain Lake High School. In my agriculture classes, I aim to create a student-driven learning environment while exploring the vast career opportunities that agriculture offers. Crazy enough, I am teaching in the same classrooms my dad taught in for 17 years when he was an Agriculture teacher here at the high school!
