Teach Ag Ambassador Spotlight: Say Hello to Ariel Kent

 

 

 

 

Ariel Kent is a 2017-2018 National Teach Ag Ambassador. She is a senior at Florida A&M University in Tallahassee, Florida. In high school, Ariel was a student at Robert Morgan Educational Center in Miami.

What has been your most rewarding experience as an ag ed major so far?  Finally finding a career I could do for the rest of my life!

What are you looking forward to most about teaching?  Taking a hands-on approach to teaching. While book knowledge is important, nothing beats actual experience.

Why did you decide to become an agriculture teacher?  I want to give children something I didn’t have upon graduating high school -- direction and motivation. I entered college with only a vague idea of what I wanted to do and no motivation. I paid for it with my GPA and a year of college.
