AITC Director Sarah Kaper

My name is Sarah Kaper, and I am the Ag in the Classroom Director at the Champaign County Farm Bureau Foundation. I am a former classroom teacher who is now taking my classroom “to the fields”. That means I bring engaging ag lessons to YOU! Best of all, they are FREE. I invite you to explore ways that agriculture can find a place in your classroom whether it is in ELA, math, science, or social studies. Due to high demand, you may find it difficult to schedule with me. I am placing a high priority on visiting multiple classrooms at a grade level or visiting schools that schedule multiple classrooms/grade levels. Contact me for more information on:

  • Scheduling me for a 30-minute lesson in your classroom
  • Receiving resources for lessons so that you can teach the lesson yourself 
  • Connecting to the ag industry
