A lot of Rebecca Livingston’s job in the classroom as the Agriculture in the classroom Coordinator for Christian and Montgomery County at the University of Illinois Extension Officeis hands-on. Livingston is going to keep as much of that hands-on experience as she can, but she is also taking precautions to keep everyone safe from COVID-19.
Since Livingston will not be allowed in many classrooms this fall, students will be given ag-bags to complete the lessons at home.
Livingston is probably most excited about being able to offer classrooms virtual farm tours.
Livingston will also visit a hog farm and in the winter try to do a video of a calf being born.
Rebecca Livingston was a guest on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
