Standing in the new agricultural building on the Payson High School campus, Jadee Garner could easily be mistaken for a senior. Tall and slim, she wears her hair in a ponytail with two daisy flower pins jauntily placed behind her ear. Her voice sounds younger than her years, but she runs her classroom with direction and creativity, winning Outstanding First-year Teacher awards from both Gila County and the Arizona Agriculture Teachers Association.
