Greencastle-Antrim teacher learns from student
The roles were reversed as Greencastle-Antrim Elementary School fifth-grade teacher Barbara Eadie learned about pigs from a former student.
Austin Yeager explained all about his pigs, and the activity taking place at the Franklin County 4-H Pig Show and Sale at the Greencastle Livestock Market on Aug. 15.
Between his events, Austin told his guest how the judges operated at the auction, what they looked for in both the pigs and their handlers.
“It was wonderful to see the intense concentration and dedication of these young peopIe as they demonstrated in front of the judges and an audience,” said Eadie.
“I was so impressed with their skill, enthusiasm and hard work. It encourages me to continue striving to generate the same type of excitement and love of learning in my students for math, reading and writing. Life-long learning can happen anywhere, and doesn’t stop when you leave school.”
