The Bear River FFA program has lost an iconic teacher.

Recently, the Vice Principal position at Nevada Union High School became open; Bear River’s Ag Mechanics Teacher Tim Reid has accepted the position. Mr. Reid said it was a really hard decision to make, but our school supports his move and knows that he will have a great experience.

Last week, Mr. Reid was been busy moving his office from the D-wing to the Vice Principal office at N.U. He said he was heartbroken to leave his teacher job at Bear River but felt that it was time for him to advance in his career.

“It is a weird excitement to have new challenges; leaving from a teacher to an assistant principal gives me a new job,” said Mr. Reid. “I am a lifelong learner and I think I will enjoy the switch.”

Students and staff members are happy for Mr. Reid and feel that he will succeed at his new career.

“I am very sad that he is leaving but I know it is the best for him,” said Julia Yoder, a junior. “Here we will learn to cope with the loss of an Ag teacher but I know we can work with the new Ag teacher.”

“(I am) sad Reid is leaving because he was my mentor and the one that got me interested in Ag Mechanics, but I am glad he is going onto bigger and better places,” said Aidan Smith, a sophomore.

“We are so proud of Mr. Reid and excited for him, though he will be deeply missed at Bear River,” said Principal Amy Besler. “He will surely be very successful in this new role as interim assistant principal.” 

By losing an Ag advisor, the FFA officer team and members in the chapter will have to learn to work more independently.

“Our Ag advisers take us on FFA trips and conventions, but I think our team will be able to handle it fine,” said Yoder.

“Mr. Reid has continued to refine a stellar program, which will now carry on in his absence; the student leaders within the program possess outstanding skills in implementing what they have learned over the years and mentoring younger students,” said Principal Besler.

“It is very unfortunate to lose such a fantastic teacher and a big devastation to the chapter,” said Lauren Glomson, a junior. 

Mr. Reid said he will mostly miss the Bear River’s students, supportive community, and the friendly atmosphere.

“Obviously it’s bitter sweet,” he said. “It is tough leaving because I have built a strong relationships with all my students over the past 4 years and that’s what makes it hard to leave. Most of all I will miss the kids in the agriculture world, from in the classroom to early Saturday mornings to go to FFA competitions.”
