California Agricultural Teachers’ Association Awards Outstanding Young Teacher to Tim Reid

At their Annual Conference held recently in San Luis Obispo, members of the California Agricultural Teachers’ Association (CATA) recognized Tim Reid, instructor at Bear River High School, as the 2014 CATA Outstanding Young Teacher.

The Outstanding Young Teacher Award is awarded annually to a member of the Agricultural Education profession who has demonstrated the highest level of professional performance and involvement in their program and community.

Tim Reid has been a highly successful instructor in Agricultural Education at Bear River High School. He just completed his sixth year in the profession, specializing in the area of Agricultural Mechanics. “By teaching agriculture, I believe it is my job to uncover the wealth of potential in every student by pushing them to maximize their own potential. I hope every student leaves my classroom with a stronger understanding of and appreciation for agriculture mechanical systems, and an ability to develop their own passions and skill sets for a lifetime of productive achievement” said Reid.

In addition to his outstanding work in the classroom, Tim has served as a Regional Officer in the Superior Region CATA, and has been active on various committees at the local, regional, and state level.

The California Agricultural Teachers’ Association is a professional education association, representing over 700 instructors in Agricultural Education at the Middle School through University levels in California, with headquarters located in Elk Grove, California.
