Promising Practices

Totally Acceptable?

1. To spend your planning period daydreaming about your summer vacation (or at least where you would go if you had time for a vacation),

2. To encourage your students to spend the summer really developing their SAE's,

3. To already start planning your FFA retreat campfire stories,

4. To dance and sing as you water the greenhouse,

5. And to already start planning for the awesome things your ag program will accomplish next school year!

Sanity Tip

"If we want to increase the number of students who want to become ag teachers, we have set a much better example of what it means to have a balanced life as a professional.  When we can start spending more time with our loved ones doing the things we love to do (that are NOT related to school) without affecting our ability to touch the lives of our students, more students will want to become ag teachers.  The time to start doing that is now."
