 Mr Penland with Altivo

I'm grateful to teach in the same community where I grew up here in Weaverville.  Before I began teaching in 2015, I worked 20 years in the horticulture industry as a landscape contractor.  My interests include landscape construction, greenhouse production and cycling.
I teach Exploring Agricultural Science in the fall at NBMS, and Horticulture I & Horticulture II at North Buncombe High School during the spring. 

FALL 2020 class information:
This fall I will use CANVAS to deliver online instruction.  This is an online website that students will use to complete and submit class work.  I will have a virtual "meet the teacher" meeting on Friday August 14th where I will share more details about agriculture class this fall.  I will send a meeting link to all of my students on their school email account by 5pm Thursday August 13th.   My NBMS Room is #206 & my virtual office hours are M-F 8:50 to 9:45 am & 12:00 to 1:00 pm.  Keep checking back here as I will update this section as new information becomes available.  
Feel free to email me at if you have any questions.
Thank you!  -Mr Penland
