Many Hats. One Mission. #TeachAg

Blog Post created by Andrea Fristoe on Nov 22, 2019


Teaching agriculture truly is the BEST. CAREER. EVER. 
However, it is important to have an identity outside of the classroom, in order to relate to your students and community, and to define who you are as an individual. The many hats you wear in terms of your unique talents and skills make you a great ag teacher!


Switching Hats

This month we get to meet Alan Green, agriculture teacher at Unionville-Sebewaing Area Schools, in Michigan. As a new teacher, Alan has had to learn how to balance work and life. Read how he uses a hobby to develop a new skill and make a positive difference in his mental health. 


"I am looking most forward to the ability to prepare students to thrive in their own individual ways throughout life, and to help them uncover the unique talents that they have to offer the world."
-Megan Whited
