New Skyline Ag teacher Ryan Kinsler wants to share Ag career possibilities with students.

Providing employment options in agriculture is an ultimate goal for Skyline's newest faculty member Ryan Kinsler.

"I want to expose students to job choices in agriculture," Kinsler.

Kinsler got to spend some time with the FFA students at an ice cream social at Skyline on July 7 to welcome him to the Skyline faculty.

Although the final school schedule is not set yet, Kinsler said he would be teaching welding, animal science, agronomy and small engines.

Providing employment options is important for students because they might not know what they want to do with their life and may not be aware of the options available in agriculture.

Kinsler said he wanted to make his classes interesting so students would want to attend and learn employable skills.

Besides teaching Ag courses, Kinsler will also be the new FFA advisor. Students involved in FFA take part in competitions that test their knowledge and skills in various areas associated with agriculture.

Students get to shadow people in various agriculture jobs and learn, first hand, valuable skills that can eventually help them find jobs.

Kinsler comes from an agriculture background wants others to share the connection he feels with the land.

"I enjoy Ag. It's a good fit for me to teach others about agriculture," Kinsler said.

Currently, Kinsler farms with his parents Ross and Judy Kinsler. They farm wheat, corn, soybeans, alfalfa and they raise cow/calf pairs.

Kinsler graduated Kingman High School then earned two associates degrees from Hutchinson Community College in diesel mechanics and farm and ranch management. He received his bachelors degree in agronomy from Fort Hays State University in 2016.
