John Doyle, Stewardship Teacher, grew up just north of Hanover, New Hampshire, on his family’s farm. Using only a horse-drawn plow, John made maple syrup, cut wood for heating the family home, hayed, raised livestock, hunted and trapped, and grew and sold vegetables. John attended Bridgeton Academy and later Hawthorn College, where he received his BA in history. After college, John spent thirteen years working in hotel and restaurant management at the Hanover Inn, six years building custom-houses, and the past twelve years teaching building trades, agriculture, forestry, and wildlife science to 7th-12th graders. John has been a coverts cooperator for the state of New Hampshire since 1996, and is passionate about teaching students about wildlife conservation, forestry management, and beef cattle.
