Neil Fellenbaum, 2000 PSU Alumnus: Outstanding Secondary Educator!
Mr. Neil Fellenbaum,
Penn Manor High School Agriculture Educator
Agriculture Educators are making a difference in the lives
of students all over the nation. One Pennsylvania Ag Teacher is being
recognized for his dedication and hard work during the recent school year. Mr.
Neil Fellenbaum (@NeilFell), the agriculture educator at Penn Manor High School and 2000 alumnus of Penn State AEE, will be receiving
the Penn Manor School District Outstanding Secondary Educator Award! This award
is based on nominations which are then reviewed by Penn Manor Administration
and the school board.
Mr. Fellenbaum is from Washington Boro, PA and attended Penn
Manor High School where he has been teaching for the past 14 years. The 1800
student high school is located in Millersville, PA. in western Lancaster
County. Mr. Fellenbaum stated that “the Agriculture students are driven and interested
to learn, and the administration, advisory committee and community are
extremely supportive.” Penn Manor offers a variety of agriculture courses including agricultural science, horticulture, biotechnology, wildlife, agricultural mechanics, welding and many
Mr. Fellenbaum and current FFA members!
The time and effort put into these classes and the students
has great rewards. Mr. Fellenbaum stated that “the most rewarding part of
teaching is seeing the positive changes that students make in their four years
of high school. I also enjoy seeing the
look on the face of a student when they achieve a goal that they have set for
themselves and the confidence that builds in them as a person.”
His words of wisdom for future agriculture educators are that
“Agriculture Education is the place to be if you want to be involved in making
students better people.”
Congratulations Mr. Neil Fellenbaum on receiving the
2013-2014 Penn Manor School District Outstanding Secondary Educator Award!
