Ag Education for ALL!
Agricultural Education for All is a joint partnership of the National Association of Agricultural Educators and the National FFA Organization with the goal of ensuring all in agricultural education feel welcome, safe and celebrated as their authentic selves. Every month in New Teacher News we will feature some of the outstanding teachers making a difference and creating inclusive, diverse and equitable programs for their students.
This month, we would like to introduce you to Jaysa Fillmore, agriculture instructor at the College of Southern Idaho, in Twin Falls, Idaho. Jaysa is in her twelfth year of teaching and has been a valuable resource and mentor for students from many different backgrounds to be confident in who they are and successful in their agricultural pursuits. She is also an outstanding example of how work/life balance is possible for ag teachers!
