I guess since this is a web page about me, I should give some information on the subject.  

Josh Christiansen

    I went to School at Miller high school, graduating in May, 1998 with 63 students in my graduating class.
I attended South Dakota State University
in Brookings, SD for 5 years.  I graduated
with a BA in Ag Education in May, 2003. 
My first teaching job was at the Public school in Flandreau, SD where I have been since 2003. The classes that I teach can be found on another page of this website.  I spend a lot of time working during the school year, because I really believe that what I do is important.  I want to be the best teacher that I can for my students and hopefully they come out of my classes saying that they learned something about agriculture and about life in general. My future goals are to buy a small (100 - 200 acres) portion of land in the country around this area and raise a few head of cattle as a side job to the school.  I hope that I can do that within 10 to 15 years.
I also attended Auctioneer school during the summer of 2004.  I went with my brother, Ben, and actually learned a lot about the trade.  I haven't had much opportunity to use the skills I've learned but I do a fundraising auction for the FFA chapter every year and hope to eventually start spending some of my summer time setting up and selling at auctions.  It is quite a difficult business to get into.  I also teach some of the marketing techniques that I learned in my Ag Business class. I hope this give you a pretty good idea of who I am and where I came from.  I'm sure that there is a lot more about me than I could ever write, but I can usually be reached by phone or e-mail if you would like to learn more.
