Promising Practices

Totally Acceptable...
  1. To get a little emotional about your soon-to-be graduating seniors,
  2. To plan lessons that will allow you and your students a little extra time in the sunshine,
  3. To order a Teach Ag Kit for that student you just know will be an ag teacher one day,
  4. To take a walk outside during your lunch break to help clear your mind, relax, and finish out the school day refreshed and motivated,
  5. To make plans for professional development opportunties this summer that will help you recharge yourself and your program!
