Welcome to Agriculture Education
Who is Mrs. Hite?

Hello! I grew up in Millville, Pennsylvania on a small hobby farm. I've always had an interest in the agricultural sciences. The 4-H Livestock Club in my county was a huge factor in sparking my interests for the animal sciences. I've shown market lambs, goats and hogs since the age of 8 and enjoy helping FFA members now who are interested in showing at the Mountain State Fair. I was in FFA in high school and competed in the Floriculture Career Development Event placing 3rd in the state and advancing to Nationals. 

Majoring in Animal Science, I attended the University of Wyoming. However, sophmore year, I switched majors to Agriculture Education. Meeting my future husband one summer in Pennsylvania, I decided to move back home and attend The Pennsylvania State University. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree and a minor in Horticulture. 

My husband, Zach and I moved to Anson county NC in 2013 teaching for 2.5 years at Anson High School. We moved to Black Mountain in January 2016. He is a Project Lead the Way Engineering instructor at the Nesbitt Discovery Academy in Asheville. We have 2 dogs- Rocky and Ginger.
