The team of Morgan Kerr and Stephanie Enaire are teaching partners at the Gray-New Gloucester Middle School and were recognized for adding agriculture to all subjects across their curriculum. For example, they use their school garden to teach Science, Math and Language Arts. They have raised chickens with their students, visited local farms, explored agricultural careers, and even studied history through the remaining rock walls and foundations left from farms in their area. Mr. Kerr has been a summer youth educator at Wolfe’s Neck Farm. Mrs. Enaire grew up on a dairy farm right in the same county.
