FFA Annual Officer Leadership Retreat
FFA Annual Officer Leadership Retreat

Where else would a teacher want to be on her birthday but with her students in that infamous Oklahoma heat? 

Ms. @Jesslyn Schrock left out early heading to OKC with the CHS FFA officer team for their annual leadership retreat. Expecting to improve collaboration, build trust, and energize the team she planned an original retreat at the RIVERSPORT Adventure Park in the Boathouse District. 

The morning on the water in rafts geared toward helping the FFA team work together more effectively, which included several races and a little tug of war. This experience inspired their creativity so, over lunch, the group collaborated on some long-range planning for the chapter. Build communication and work together with your group towards a common goal as you complete Although there is no "i" in "team," leaders need to be self-aware and personally challenged to have a growth mindset. A five-story ropes course helped them face their fears and engaged their adventurous nature. A couple of the officers embraced the unknown and tackled rumble jump. 

The leadership lessons all cumulated as they faced the Class 4 white water rapids. "While we all ended up soaked, it was an excellent personal and professional leadership experience. As a bonus... nobody fell out of the raft," she said with a grin. 

Happy Belated Birthday Ms. Schrock!
