Welcome to our website.
I am Rickey Odom. I am starting my 36th year of teaching in the Lake County School District. I am a lifelong resident of Lake County. This is my 7th year at Leesburg High School. The agriculture program consists of three main areas: Classroom instruction, Supervised Agriculture Experience (SAE) and FFA. I hope that each of your children becomes involved in the entire program to reap the greatest benefit.

Last year, Tammy Jerkins was chosen Lake County Teacher of the Year and later selected as the 2018 Florida Teacher of the Year, representing more than 195,000 teachers across the state. This year, Tammy will be taking a sabbatical from teaching and will be serving as the Christa McAuliffe Ambassador for Education. While she will miss teaching at LHS, she is honored to serve in this new role. She will be touring the state to learn from other teachers as well as delivering motivational speeches and sharing instructional strategies. She hopes teachers, students, and other community friends will follow her journey at learnwithmeflorida.com or @2018fltoy.

My Educational Aspiration, "Students will experience their classrooms as invigorating, even inspiring environments..places they look forward to going to and places they hate to leave. It is our dream that they will come to know themselves as masters of various crafts..It is our desire that they will come to love the process of learning itself by making it their own." (Paideleria)
