Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Nick Davis
Growing up as a 5th generation farmer and rancher has provided me with experience that has produced a well-blended agricultural background. I was involved in the daily operation of our cattle management programs, responsible for repairing and servicing farm equipment, and balancing the farm budget.
I have earned a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Agricultural Education Teaching Option from the University of Idaho in May 2005. I have also earned a Master’s of Science degree in Educational Leadership in May 2011. Along with my teaching certificate I am endorsed in Agricultural Education, Consumer Economics, Natural Science, and I have completed coursework for an Administration endorsement. I am Highly Qualified in Agriculture and Natural Science courses.
My qualifications include teaching classes in agricultural shop, parliamentary procedure, beginning agriculture, plant science, and animal science. Other qualifications include coaching high school football, FFA Career Development Event (C.D.E.) team coaching, and advising in Supervised Agricultural Experiences.
Over the past decade at Middleton High School I have taught and advised the local FFA program. During that time multiple students have went on to receive their State FFA Degree four of which were finalist for State Star awards, and one member was selected as the State Star in Agribusiness. Numerous members of the Middleton FFA have earned the American FFA Degree in the last ten years; one student was a finalist for National Star Agribusiness in 2010. I also coached the Middleton FFA Chapter to a first place state finish in Agricultural Mechanics in 2009, it was the first time Middleton FFA had won a State contest in anything since 1991. Currently thirteen other teams have placed 1st at state and also competed nationally.
