Welcome to the Agricultural Science Department here at Kimberly High School where the Bulldogs always prove to reign superior.

My name is Miss Carly Oman and I am the new Ag Teacher and FFA Advisor here at Kimberly High School for the 2020-2021 school year. I hope that everyone is adjusting to our new reality of life, which include the barriers that have been brought on by COVID-19. I was actually student teaching when COVID seemed to shut down the world. As a senior in college it greatly altered my hopeful future plans. However, it ultimately led me to Kimberly, Idaho; where I am so incredibly blessed to be in an amazing community, with so many bright and driven students in my classroom.

My goal for the year is to create an environment in the school where the students feel secure, even with all of the turmoil around us. Today, I am sitting in my classroom reflecting on recent events this week has brough. My thoughts go out to those in our school community who are suffering from the effects of COVID-19. Sadly, not only this illness is affecting our school population- As I peek out the window, I see the smoke rolling into our quaint little town. My heart sinks as I witness the rage that the wildfires are also bringing to the community. Please, if you are in need of anything, do not ever hesitate to reach out to the Ag Department here at the school.

For those of you that are unfamiliar with my background here is a short synopsis of my life.

I was born and raised in North Eastern Washington in a small highway town called Chewelah. There my parents raised both my little brother and I on a small cattle ranch along the valley’s ridge. My parents were no strangers to hard work as they both worked jobs in town as well as managed the ranch. As a small child, I fell in love with the lifestyle that I was so blessed to had been raised in. Horses, cows, and farming ran deep in blood for not only my father’s family left an agricultural legacy, but my mother’s did as well. My Grandmother spent the first 18 years of her life on a large ranch outside of Lewiston, ID near the Nez Perce Indian Reservation. Her and My Grandfather both attended the University of Idaho in 1960 where they met and fell in love. Although I myself, do not have roots that lie deep in fertile Idaho soil much of my family history resides in this great state.

Like many children that grow up in agriculture my dream was to become a veterinarian. However, when my father informed me, he was only going to pay for vet school if I preg-tested all his cows- I graciously and gracefully bowed out from that career path. Early on in my educational career I fell in love with horses and then barrel racing. Having a thirst for something I was so incredibly passionate about gave me a drive- a target to strive towards.

I loved high school. As a cheerleader I craved school spirit and enjoyed spending meaningful time with my peers. On the other hand, I also dug the educational aspect of school- science, biology, and agriculture were some of the most filling parts of my day. When I decided I did not want to be a Vet anymore I needed to make a decision- something else to strive towards.

Was it possible to combine everything that I loved into a career? The answer lied with my amazing and saintly Ag Teacher. With her wisdom she steered me down the corn gold path into a sea of national blue souls. I found my home in agricultural education as the senior FFA president of my home chapter in the fall of 2015.

Although my family did indeed lead a legacy in my small hometown, I decided I wanted to explore new horizons. During the summer of 2016 I walked across the stage, flipped my tassel, and kissed my small-town roots goodbye. That fall I ended up at Utah State University in Logan, Utah, where I spent the next four years of my life.

In the midst of a global pandemic, I abruptly completed my student teaching experience at Bear River High School in Tremonton, Utah and graduated from USU with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Agricultural Education. Although my final days of school were not as glorious as I had hoped. I was just happy to have made it to the other side.

2020 brought all kinds of new innovations to our realities including college graduation in a box. However, best of all it led me to Kimberly High School where I am surround by so many wonderful, strong willed, hardworking, and inspirational people daily.

I am so unbelievably fortunate to serve the students of this community as their teacher.
