One thing Chelcee Mansfield has learned — no two days are ever the same.

Mansfield, the agricultural science and technology teacher at Union High School, can teach tractor driving one day, meat evaluation the next, all while squeezing in some discussions about welding arcs and world hunger. All of it adds up to one thing — just another day for Mansfield. 

“Ag is such a diverse subject,” Mansfield said. “I like it. There is never a day that is the same.”

Mansfield grew up in Enterprise, where her family had livestock and she was active in the FFA program. She went on to study animal science at Oregon State University and then returned to complete a master’s degree in ag education. She taught for two years in Echo, before accepting her current position at Union High School.

“I love Eastern Oregon. I couldn’t wait to get back here,” Mansfield said.

Mansfield feels enriched by her own experiences in FFA, and she hopes to create similar opportunities for her students. Especially important to 
Mansfield is the community support she experienced and the people she met including business leaders, agricultural growers and other FFA instructors.

“You meet really great people,” she said.
