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 Paul Young, agriculture teacher at Cape Fear High School, in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Paul has been teaching agriculture for three years, inspiring his students to become agriculturalists and leaders, while promoting diversity, inclusion, and equity in his classroom and in the ag education profession.
"When I enter the classroom, I look forward to watching my students step outside of their comfort zones and fulfill their personal potential in learning and leadership."
