“He had a common-sense approach to solving problems. His passion for the forestry industry was evident. He was an outstanding ambassador for the trade and advocate for those involved. And he took time to listen to the concerns of his fellow Farm Bureau members, no matter the issue.”

Highlighting one of our county FFA teachers - Keep up the great work Kim Salsbury!

Hey Michigan FFA! For this week’s #TeacherTuesday we will be spotlighting Mrs. Kimberly Salsbury from the Jonesville FFA Chapter!

Mrs. Salsbury graduated from Marysville High School and attended Adrian College to pursue a degree in Biology, Chemistry, and Secondary Education. Later, she received her Masters degree in Secondary Education and Human Resources from Siena Heights University. Not only did she receive her Masters, but also attended Michigan State University and the University of Cincinnati to work on her certification for Agriculture and STEM. After teaching biology, chemistry, and research for 10 years in Onsted, she moved into an administrative position at LISD.

During this time, Mrs. Salsbury worked with several students in the Ag program on their science fair projects. This is where her love for agriculture began! Mrs. Salsbury has been involved in the Ag program at Jonesville for 10 years. The best part about her job is being able to work with her students!

When we asked Mrs. Salsbury for one piece of advice she would give to new teachers, she responded with “Find your strengths and focus on that for the first couple of years, build as you go, add new competitions, activities, etc… however, know your limits, you are only ONE person.”

Mrs. Salsbury, thank you for being committed to teaching agriculture and for making an impact on your students!

Enjoyed visiting with members of the Hillsdale County Farm Bureau and Eaton County Farm Bureau this week. We discussed everything from the USMCA to mental health awareness.
