The CouncilConnecting With Our Teacher Leaders
Many of the National Council members and staff will be attending the National ACTE and NAAE conferences in Vegas this week. We look forward to celebrating the successes of our teachers both secondary and post-secondary. We look forward to networking with teachers and state leaders and sharing the new resources the Council is developing to support students and teachers in agricultural education across the country.As we develop and share resources being created and supported by Council sponsors (John Deere and CSX), we are also thankful to the agricultural education-related organizations and state ag teacher organizations across the country for their support and contributions to grow and strengthen agricultural education. Everyone’s assistance to support the Council initiatives will assist teachers in saving time, increasing efficiency, and assisting students in academic and career success for the future. We look forward, this week, to sharing information on the National Quality Program Standards survey tools and new Supervised Agriculture Experience tools being developed. Along with those tools, we will be sharing many of our new projects, including the focus on a culture of safety, agricultural mechanics instruction, and resources to improve the public’s perception of agriculture and education.The meetings this week at NAAE and ACTE will continue to foster connections with partners and agricultural education leaders. The conversations and meetings will provide a forum for thought and direction and continue to identify opportunities and resources. Hope to see you at the conference this week.
