Agriculture at Auburn Middle School and Auburn High School
Hello! My name is Ashton Bohling. I teach agriculture at Auburn Middle School and Auburn High School. I also sponsor the FFA and middle school/assistant high school cross country coach.
I grew up near Plymouth, Nebraska on a small family farm with 2 sisters, 5 dogs, 1 horse, and a lot of cows and cats. I graduated from Tri County High School in 2008 where I was involved in cross country, track, softball, basketball, swimming, speech team, FFA, FCA, and student council.
I attended the University of Nebraska Lincoln. I majored in Agriculture Education. I received minors in Agricultural Economics and Animal Science. During my time at the University of Nebraska Lincoln, I was also involved in the Nebraska Beef Industry Scholars program, the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources ambassador program, the Nebraska FFA Alumni, the Agriculture Education Club, UNL Club Softball, and various intramural athletics.
I recently completed my endorsement in Biology Education at the University of Nebraska Lincoln and I am currently working on a Master’s of Applied Science.
During the fall of 2011, I student taught in the Clarinda, Iowa school district. I coached cross country while student teaching. During the last semester of my senior year in college, I also served as a substitute teacher with the Raymond Central and Tri County school districts.
In the fall of 2012, I began teaching at the first Urban Agriculture and Natural Resources Career Academy in Omaha Public Schools at Bryan High School. This was the first urban agriculture career academy in the state. In the fall of 2013, I taught agriculture and science at Conestoga Public Schools.
I was extremely blessed that Auburn Public Schools opened an agriculture program and I was hired for the fall of 2014. I currently teach Introduction to Agriculture (year long), Plant Science (1st semester), Horticulture (2nd semester), Animal Biology (1st semester), Large Animal Management (2nd semester, odd years), Companion Animals (2nd semester, even years), 8th Grade Agriculture (1st and 2nd semester), Welding 1-2 (year long), and Welding 3-4 (year long). I also serve as the FFA advisor, the middle school cross country coach, and the assistant high school cross country coach.
My husband, Trenton, and I live on the family farm near Johnson, Nebraska. Trenton is a grain originator with Midwest Cooperative. We also have cows, crops, and chickens.
I am a fanatic about being busy. I love being active, which includes running, playing sports, gardening, and working outside. I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I would travel everyday if I could. I love ice cream, McDonald’s, office supplies, farm life, El Portal, and a good comedy.
