Meet Our Facilitators


Krista Pontius

Agriculture Teacher

Greenwood High School

Millerstown, PA


Facilitates: CDE Community


What do you love to teach? Environmental Science

Why do you love to teach? ​I love helping students find success! Having the opportunity to play a small role in my student's lives is the most rewarding part of my job. I really couldn't image doing anything else!

Best thing you've found on CoP: Endless classroom ideas!!! I love to search for specific curriculum topics and explore what others have shared.

Why did you volunteer to facilitate? I've been helped by so many teachers throughout my career, so it is my pleasure to help someone else.


To volunteer, contact CoP administrator Julie Fritsch, or learn more by reading this facilitator position description.

Welcome to Communities of Practice!

Communities of Practice is a professional networking site for agricultural educators managed by the National Association of Agricultural Educators. Its purpose is to create a common place for anyone who is interested in agricultural education to share ideas and resources.

Where should I post?

See the Places box to your left? Expand the Spaces menu (it should be expanded by default already). From there, click on view sub-spaces to see which communities fall under each category. If you would rather see all the communities and sub-communities as a list, check out this map. CoP Community Map
