Many teachers have huge impacts in students’ lives. They create a platform for futures, teach many valuable lessons that will be used every day, and guide students on the path to be successful adults. 

Vet Tech teacher Trammell has loved animals for as long as she can remember. When she moved from the city to a small town, she learned about farming, cultivation, and the raising of livestock, which later led to a career in agriculture. Livestock and Veterinary Medical Application are a few of the many classes that Trammell loves to teach.  

“Compassion for animals is a huge part of being in this field,” Trammell said. “If you don’t love what you do, then it you can’t teach agriculture properly.” 

In veterinary tech courses, students learn how to conduct diagnostic tests, administer medication to sick animals, assist veterinarians during surgery, conduct inventory of medical supplies, and communicate with pet owners. A few projects include: injection labs, dissections of animal organs, and practicing surgical sutures on fake skin. 

“Many students choose a career because they think it would make them money or simply because it sounds cool, but the Vet Tech program gives students a chance to be hands on and in the field,” Trammel said.”It allows each student the chance to check out the field and make their decision for the future.” 

According to Trammell, being able to work with students who actually want to learn about the subject makes the classes so much more enjoyable, but there are also a few challenges.  

“One of the hardest things to do in a classroom is to keep students interested and on task,” Trammell said. “My main goal for all of my students is to end the agriculture program with certification to be a Veterinary Technician Assistant.”
