Mackay
Do you like to get away from the hustle and bustle? Do you like all 4 seasons in one day? Do you like a teaching partner that is positive, happy and cheerful all the time? If so do I have the job for you!!!  Mackay High School Ag Teacher Trent VanLeuven is attempting to make a paradigm shift and open a second ag position to teach ag science courses in the place of science.  The superintendent is open to the concept and Trent made a bet that he would have a much easier time hiring a high quality individual that would stick around from the agsciences. Trent’s goal is to split the ag science classes with a new hire.  You can help in this process by applying for the position and in the cover letter discuss your hope to teach ag science classes in the place of science. The insurance isn't great.  But they have a 4 day week and the following amenities:
-A 4 day school week.
-You get to teach with THE TRENT VANLEUVEN
-He will get you an elk cow hunt.
-Ice fishing is great.  Heck, all the fishing is great.
-Relaxing atmosphere with the best view.
-And a 4 day school week.
Help Trent make his dream become a reality! Yes he is serious, for more questions contact Trent VanLeuven at trenvanl@mackayschools.org
