It's the most wonderful time of the year! Here at the NAAE National Teach Ag Campaign, we can't think of a better way to celebrate than by choosing the BEST. CAREER. EVER!
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 Teach Ag Times 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 Dr. Veronica Sanders, agriculture teacher at Warner Robins High School, in Warner Robins, Georgia. Dr. Sanders plays a vital role in the progress agricultural education continues to make in the areas of inclusion, diversity and equity. Growing up on a farm raising small livestock, Dr. Veronica Sanders never imagined herself teaching agriculture. However, she decided to do so 27 years ago. In 1994, Veronica was the only African American female teaching middle school ag classes in Georgia.
"If you are on the fence about pursuing ag ed, take the leap and follow it with your whole heart."
