Dr. Laura Greenhaw
Agricultural Education Led to Teaching
Dr. Laura Greenhaw's agricultural education led to a series of increased job opportunities. Currently, Dr. Greenhaw is making an impact as Assistant Professor for Agricultural Leadership at the University of Florida. She says her favorite part of teaching is connecting with her students, "I love to see those “ah ha” moments in the classroom when something clicks. I love to see them get super excited when they get passionate about their learning and success and the impact they can have."
