Ag teachers wear many hats. They teach agricultural skills and literacy, math, science, English, mechanics, and life skills. They provide leadership development for their students. When something needs to be fixed, the ag teacher gets the call. Many days and many miles are spent bringing FFA members to competitions, conferences, livestock shows, and more. Ag teachers are pillars in their communities who serve on civic and church boards and develop generational relationships with the families they teach. They are agricultural educators by choice and not by chance.
The FFA would not be made possible without our ag teachers. Learn more about agricultural education and how to become an agricultural educator.
