Mrs. Hannah Adams joined us this year in the Rosebud-Lott Agriculture department. She teaches a wide range of classes, including Communications, Principles of Agriculture, Small Animal Management, Food Tech, Equine, and her two favorites: Animal Science and Floral Design. She is exceeding standards as her first year teaching on her own, as she brings passion and life to each and every class throughout her busy day. She is proud of her work and the students in her classes so far, and excited to continue her journey as an Ag teacher at RL.

“Although [the job] is both emotionally and physically draining, the opportunity to make a difference in these kids’ lives makes it entirely worth it,” said Adams.

After first attending a junior college on a full ride scholarship, Adams attended Tarleton State University, for which she is eternally proud, as indicated by her large, purple, “T” above her desk in her classroom. She first fell in love with small schools during her high school career, graduating in a senior class of 24 students from Gilmer high school. She brings that same, small school, family type of mindset with her to our school. Her decision to become an ag teacher was for the opportunity to make a difference, not just in the students, but in the world.

“Teachers create a passion for all other jobs. It all starts with the teachers. And there are so many different jobs in just the agriculture field; one of the most important fields on the planet,” said Adams.

Mrs. Adams enjoys teaching skills that could actually prove useful in the students’ lives and being a part of something much bigger than herself. She looks up to and regularly references her own Ag teacher in high school, Mr. Vanduffey.

“I looked up to him because, well, he was taller than me,” Adams joked with a smile. “He taught me how to be confident and a leader, and that’s what I want to do for these kids.”

You might know Mrs. Adams as Ms. Bolt, as she was very recently married to “her best friend,” Hayes. Her and her new husband met through work in Agrilife research in college. She enjoys playing her ukulele and jogging in her free time outside of school. In her house also lives her pet corgi, Hayden.

“She is a very good girl,” Adams said.

So far, things have been going well for Mrs. Adams. The students have quickly accepted her as one of their own and are doing very well in her classes.

“Above all else, I want the kids to understand that they really can do anything if they put their mind to it,” Adams said. “That is what’s most important to me.”
