Chino Valley Review

Chino Valley High School (CVHS) agriculture teacher, Casey Farnsworth, earned a top award from a state teachers association on July 16 in Tucson.

Farnsworth received the 2014 Black Canyon District Teacher of the Year Award from the Arizona Agriculture Teachers Association while attending the 39th annual Association for Career Technical Education (CTE) of Arizona Conference in Tucson.

"I am so proud of teaching Agriculture Education here at CVHS and can honestly say I am living the dream," Farnsworth said.

Each district within the association picks the teacher for the award. Bethany Masters, an agriculture teacher from Mayer High School, nominated Farnsworth.

The award is selected for the following factors: membership in professional organizations, program and professional improvement, completion of state forms and letters of recommendation from administrators.

The CVHS FFA Chapter, under Farnsworth as co-advisor, received the FFA Gold Chapter ranking in 2013 and 2014. Farnsworth also serves as director for the school's 32-acre educational Cooper Ag Center Farm on west Center Street at Highway 89.

Farnsworth, a 2004 CVHS graduate, began as a para-professional at the school in 2007 and full-time as a teacher in 2009, teaching Agriscience, Applied Biological Systems, a dual Yavapai College credit class of Viticulture and a CAC farm class.

In the past five years, he has taught all grades and an advanced Ag Mechanics class.
