Hello Illinois Agricultural Education Family,

It has been a pleasure serving you as the District 1 FCAE Program Advisor this past year.  I would like to thank everyone (especially my District 1 Teachers) for your dedication to your students, schools, communities, and to the agricultural education profession.  I truly believe Illinois has some of the best agricultural education professionals in the country and I have appreciated your cooperation and dedication to Ag Ed during my tenure with FCAE.  

I want to inform everyone that my last workday with the FCAE project is today.  I will be using my remaining vacation days until my official last day which is June 30.  If you are needing any assistance between now and then, please feel free to contact any of the other FCAE District Program Advisors. You can find their contact information here.  Mr. John Heiser will officially begin his new position as the D1 Program Advisor on July 1st.  His email will be  I wish John the best of luck as he transitions into his new role.

Finally, I look forward to working with everyone as I transition into my new position as assistant professor of agricultural education at Illinois State University.  Please feel free to reach out at anytime. My new email is
