2020 will definitely make history books...or e-books most likely in our future classrooms. We are living in a time of uncertainty and unrest. However, many are using this time to take a stand against injustice and further their practices of inclusion, diversity, and equity in our nation. Many of these leaders are ag teachers and represent why teaching ag really is the BEST. CAREER. EVER!
