• Hello! My name is Kristin Beery and I will be the instructor for  Floriculture, Greenhouse and Plant Production and the Livestock Management/Operating the Farm Business courses. I graduated from Fort Defiance High School and completed the transfer program at Blue Ridge Community College. From there, I received my Bachelor's in Animal and Poultry Sciences at Virginia Tech. I emphasized in the Poultry Production and Business Option. I stayed at Virginia Tech another year to receive my Master's in Career and Technical Education. I taught agriculture at Wilson Middle School for 4 years and then 5 years at Riverheads High School before coming to Valley Career and Technical Center. This will be my 13th year of teaching and my 4th year at VCTC. I live on a beef and poultry farm with my husband and two little boys. I love helping students discover their passions and sharing about agriculture. In my spare time, I enjoy photography and traveling around the world! (I have been to 10 different countries and have served in Haiti 8 times!)
