Mrs. Chelsea Begnaud
I grew up as a military kid, because my dad is in the Navy. It required a lot of moving around as a kid, but provided me numerous opportunities to grow and develop a deep appreciation for new experiences and not taking life for granted. I grew up in Guam, a U.S. territory, and moved back stateside where I started middle school in my hometown of Kingsland, GA. I attended high school there as well graduating with honors in May of 2013. I was heavily involved with both the FFA and marching band, which later led to my reason for pursuing a degree in agricultural education. Thanks to my amazing ag teacher, I was able to participate in some incredible opportunities such as the Georgia Governor's Honors Program, serving as a National Delegate for the state of Georgia at the National FFA Convention, running as a State FFA officer, and receiving my American FFA Degree.
I began my freshman year of college at the University of Georgia beginning in Fall of 2013. I joined Sigma Alpha, a professional agricultural sorority, and got involved with collegiate FFA. While in college, I have worked at both a florist, and a trampoline park, both of which I highly enjoyed. I completed my semester of student teaching in Spring of 2016 at Eastside High School in Covington, GA under the direction of Mrs. Catrina Pollard. I graduated with my Bachelor's Degree in Fall of 2016, a semester ahead of schedule. I started teaching at Jasper County High School in January 2017. I taught Basic Agricultural Science, Ag Mech I, Ag Mech II, and Ag Mech III. I am Certified by the Certified Plant Professional Program as a Georgia Certified Plant Professional.
