Promising Practices

Totally Acceptable...
  1. To enhance your skills as an ag teacher by attending professional development workshops at NAAE Convention,
  2. To teach your students the importance of community service by conducting a Thanksgiving food drive for local families in your community,
  3. To remind your students that teaching ag is one of the most rewarding and fulfilling careers,
  4. To turn off your technology and spend quality time with family and friends during Thanksgiving,
  5. To spend a few minutes of your planning period looking up Black Friday and Cyber Monday never know what you might find for your program (or yourself)!

My Corner of the World
The semester is almost over! How is your desk looking these days as you get ready for Thanksgiving food drives, progress reports, and final exams & projects? For Sara Colombe, agriculture teacher at Hoven High School, in Hoven, South Dakota, there's nothing a strong cup of coffee can't help get her through!
