GLENWOOD — Tiffany Kobbermann, a family and consumer science teacher at Minnewaska High School in Glenwood, has received the Minnesota Agriculture in the Classroom 2022 Teacher of the Year award.
In her application, Kobbermann wrote that "all of my lessons are agriculturally based. I believe that students need a well-rounded perspective of agriculture. My hope is that my students will share the positive things they learn with their friends and families and the circle of learning will continue to grow."
Kobbermann will receive a $500 stipend and up to $1,500 in expenses to attend the 2022 National Agriculture in the Classroom Conference in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., in June.
