Mrs. Sue Poland
Position: Ag Teacher
Other: FFA Advisor
Bio: I am pleased to be a part of the Homedale Agriculture Department and advisor to the Homedale FFA chapter, which has recently been recognized as being one of the best in the nation, earning the highest ranking in the National Chapter Award Program. I am currently in my second year of the program.
I came back to the classroom after three years as State FFA Advisor and Agriculture Program manager for the State of Nevada. Prior to that, I was the agriculture teacher at Cambridge High School from 1993-2011. I began my teaching career in the Carson Valley of Nevada in 1982.
The agriculture department currently features an agriscience classroom, welding shop, floral shop, greenhouse, chickens and raised bed gardens.
I am also the advisor to the Envirothon team for the high school.
I graduated from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, and received my master’s degree from the University of Nevada-Reno. I also have an enormous amount of credits in Rangeland Management, which is one of my favorite FFA contests of the year.
I love to garden, go fishing, forage the mountains for edible mushrooms, and spend time with my husband and three Catahoula-McNab cross cattle dogs.
